To all the many competitors, family and friends of the past and future Snowy Mountains Trout Festival, unfortunately due to the ongoing uncertainty that the COVID 19 has placed on the committee and organisers it gives us no other option than to cancel this years 2020 Snowy Mountains Trout Festival , but please be  assured that it will be back bigger and better in 2021 with a new fresh and fun approach. Please contact your favourite weigh station regarding any special events they may be holding over the usual Festival period. Stay safe and hope to see you all next year .

Special prize packs will be awarded to our juniors who weigh in the largest brown and rainbow trout.
We also have random cash draws for our Club/Team category.

In addition, we are giving away $12,000 in cash prizes over the six days in secret weights.

There are also prizes for the largest brown and rainbow trout recorded at each weigh in station daily.

Our ability to make these prizes available is due to the strong support from some of Australia’s leading tackle wholesalers, EJ Todd & Son, JM Gillies, Pure Fishing, Rapala and

Frogley’s Offshore. With all these amazing prizes on offer, this is a fishing event not to be missed.

The committee hopes you enjoy fishing the beautiful Snowy Mountains area and we look forward to seeing you again.
