Liawenee Trout Weekend
Come and see hundreds of wild brown trout on their annual spawning run at Liawenee, Great Lake. Watch the trout being trapped and stripped of eggs for culture by staff of the Inland Fisheries Service.
The hatchling are grown to young fish and used to restock Tasmania's legendary wild trout fishery. This is a fishery management activity that's been going on for nearly 150 years and is a unique piece of Tasmania's angling heritage.
While you're there, you can take a helicopter ride above the Lake or a bus ride along the Canal. You can visit trade exhibits, with boats and fishing gear, and check out the displays with live freshwater fish aquaria and kids can catch a trout for free in the kid's fish-out pond.
You can enjoy refreshments, entertainment, competitions and give-aways.
The event is a must for angling enthusiasts but suitable for the whole family.
