The Gaden Trout Hatchery on the Thredbo River near Jindabyne is one of Australia's main centres for breeding and rearing cold-water sport fish.

Like neighbouring Adaminaby, Jindabyne was relocated in the late 1960s when the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme called for the flooding of the original town, which now lies under the waters of Lake Jindabyne.

  • Fishing

    It’s always a good time to cast a line on Lake Jindabyne, with many forms of fishing permitted in the area.
