The 2023-2024 SNOWY HYDRO Snowy Trout Challenge (STC) has 500 ORANGE tagged Rainbow Trout awaiting your hook. Please be aware DPI Fisheries Research tags are also yellow, so make sure you look closely for STC marked tag number and information.
Anglers of all ages can register for a 2nd Chance Cash Prize drawn at the end of April 2024. If you've entered into the Snowy Trout Challenge in the past, you will be automatically registered. So if this form says 'already subscribed', then you're in!
Please note, employees and contractors of the Snowy Trout Challenge (including their immediate families) are ineligible to enter.
Upon catching a 2023-2024 orange tagged Rainbow Trout you are eligible and MUST complete the CATCH ENTRY FORM to go into a CASH PRIZE catch draw. All trout caught throughout the season will go into every draw from November 26th 2023, until the last draw in April 2024. Previous winners will be excluded from future draws. The Snowy Trout Challenge CATCH SURVEY Link is now live.
Please note there is NO email verification of entries received after you press SUBMIT, so be mindful as you enter your catch. Please see the terms and conditions for all rules and regulations. Any tag number entered TWICE will automatically disqualify all tag entries with that tag number.
The Snowy Trout Challenge is an annual trout fishing event operated by the Snowy Trout Challenge Association Incorporated (made up of members of the Jindabyne and Lake Eucumbene Chambers of Commerce) and is supported by the Snowy Monaro Regional Council's Economic Development Officer.
The Snowy Trout Challenge Committee are eager to see our visitors to the Snowy Mountains enjoy their Summer stay by having a go at catching some of the biggest rainbows that we have released into the lakes.
We would like to thank Mitch Elkins and staff at Gaden Trout Hatchery, Jindabyne (Department of Primary Industries) for tagging and releasing 500 large Rainbow Trout into the local waterways (Lake Jindabyne, Lake Eucumbene and Lake Crackenback) for the Snowy Trout Challenge. We would also like to thank our Sponsors Snowy Hydro, Discover Snowy Mountains, Banjo Paterson Inn, Lake Crackenback Resort and Spa, Lakeside Lures & Tackle Jindabyne, Kosciusko Realty, Kristy McBain MP, and High Country Fly Fishing.
The event is open from October 2023 to April 2024. For further information links go to www.linktr.ee/snowytroutchallenge/
