The Snowy Mountains is also known for being the home of the big trout. There are a number of lakes within the Snowy Mountain including Lake Jindabyne and Lake Eucumbene. Lake Eucumbene is the largest lake in the region and is one of the best fisheries in the Australian Highlands holding rainbow trout, brown trout and Atlantic salmon. The lake is regularly re-stocked with trout by NSW Fisheries which makes it a Mecca for trout fishermen. You should have no problem catching a trout in Eucumbene.
