Australian Trout Foundation ATF Online
Merry Christmas 2017

A Christmas message from the ATF President:


The Australian Trout Foundation wishes all recreational anglers a Happy Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year. We truly appreciated all the passion and commitment shown by the volunteer anglers who ably helped in the Scotty-Jordan Incubator trials and the habitat restoration projects during 2017. 


In 2018, we look forward to forming further partnerships with recreational anglers and clubs, and combining our resources with Native Fish Australia, the Victorian Fisheries Authority, Department of Land, Water & Planning, Arthur Rylah Institute, Catchment Management Authorities, and other conservation groups, to enhance our trout fishery and the health of our waterways.


We trust you will enjoy some exciting trout fishing over the holiday period with family and friends, and have many lucky and accurate casts to the mighty trout - Tight Lines and Screaming Reels.



Please remember to stay alert and stay safe whether on lakes or in streams and slip slop slap.
