INTRODUCTION TO TROUT FISHING
FOR KIDS AND FAMILIES
BAIT & SPIN TOURS
Bait and lure spinning methods are commonly used to catch trout in the Snowy Mountains and these methods are possibly the best land based ways of catching a trout. Bait fishing can only be carried out on the lakes whilst lure spinning can be done on both the lakes and in the rivers and streams.
Steve Williamson Fishing Adventures can teach you one or both of these methods of catching trout!

All tackle supplied just turn up and let us show you how to catch a trout!

BOOKING GROUP SIZE
All of our tours are usually private, that is - you book yourself and bring your own party.
We do not have daily organised charters where you book as an individual and you share the booking with others. We find that personalised tours are best. If there is only you and you want to share the cost with someone else then we will try and find someone for you to share with but it would be your responsibility to book a time and pay for the trip first.
Bait fishing and spinning on the lake is suitable for larger groups. It is recommended that 6 people is a maximum for river fishing.
There is an age limit for Children. Experience has shown us that under 5 are often too young for both methods of instructional fishing.
5 to 8 year olds are better taught to cast lures as bait fishing can sometimes be boring. (But casting lures can be dangerous due to the hooks. Casting plugs without hooks can be used until experience and accuracy happens.)
When bait fishing you have to sit and wait, be quite and have patience to catch fish.
We do however specialise in teaching children how to fish. (Just not necessarily catch fish!)
Bookings by demand.
BEST TIME TO CATCH FISH
We recommend that the early morning fishing and the weather is generally best at first light, however the fish may come on the bite at any time during the day so it is always a gamble.
If you’re a late starter then we recommend an evening booking.
Brown trout, rainbow trout, Atlantic salmon and maybe if your lucky a brook trout!
We are dealing with wild animals and we can never predict how they will behave on the day.
Our catch rate on average throughout the year is one fish per hour, but you can be lucky and catch more and you can be unlucky and catch nothing!
