If the lakes offer tranquillity, the often thunderous torrents of the mighty Thredbo River in a spring defrost are a completely different prospect. This is a place where the fish jump and hide and race for rapids and waterfalls. This is fly fishing of another dimension.
Previously known as the Crackenback, the river runs from Thredbo to Lake Jindabyne and is without question one of the most beautiful trout-perfect rivers. Giant fish and trout are a likely yield. As one of the region's two only declared "trout spawning streams" the rule is one fish per angler per day (though it is possible to continue to 'catch and release').
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
