Top water levels and well-stocked dams and rivers will mark the first ever Rose Garden Holiday Units Khancoban Troutfest. This inaugural trout tournament will kick off 24 November and run until 1 December. This is the first ever trout tournament of its type for Khancoban, and is sparked by good water levels in a time when most regions are struggling for rain.
This area fishes extremely well up until Christmas and with the addition of 20,000 to 30,000 fingerlings you should expect some good results. The waters to be fished include Khancoban Pondage, Tooma Dam, Geehi Dam and Swampy Plains River (up to the boundary of Khancoban Station), all of which offer trout anglers myriad opportunities to wet their lines. To enjoy all this there is a small entry fee of $10.
There are six categories to be taken out, including Best Brown Trout ($500) and Best Rainbow Trout ($500) as well as prizes each day for the best fish. All potential anglers must have their current NSW fishing licence with them, and adhere to all legal methods of freshwater fishing. To get a head start, the competition starts at midnight, Friday night and will finish up at 3pm Saturday December 1. Prizes will be handed out at the Khancoban Country Club.
