Salty trout

Braidwood area trout fishing

9 posts in this topic

Hi guys just wanted to know if anyone on here has had experience with flyfishing for trout around the Braidwood nsw area in its creeks and tributaries . All i can find on the net is that they may have once been there but no recent reports . Also what is the general consensus on what a creek has to have : size , flow, elevation etc to hold trout in nsw . Any info would help . Cheers

Can't help with any first hand information, but you might try the Braidwood Fishing Club who are on facebook or meet at the Servicemens Club in Braidwood.  Hope this helps.  Cheers.........

hey Salty trout,

I can't speak for the fishing but I've paddled .. can't exactly recall the distance, probably 6 or 7kms of the Shoalhaven as it runs toward and past Braidwood. This was year's ago and after a lot of rain. We were chasing rapids not fish and I wasn't fishing much at the time but even so it struck me as a very nice looking stretch of water for fishing. We did see fish, couldn't tell what but I would be money they were carp - big surface swirls left in the muddy water from fish fleeing when they spotted us.

Anyway, there's some very pretty water there and it's easy big enough and interesting enough, and when we went, winter, cold enough to house trout.

I've never fished there however it's definitely stocked with trout every year, Bill James mentions in his book that the Mongarlowe is the best stream in that area.

Mongarlowe River, just a short distance from Braidwood definitely had trout a few years back. I also believe there is a trout hatchery there as well, so one would think that trout are still in the river!

The Mongarlowe definatlely holds fish its twig water. Your on the edge of the Monaro mate there's better streams the headwaters of the Badja are worth a look. Pm me if you want some details
