Lake Glenbawn Holiday Cottages, Scone, New South Wales, Australia - Information about the lake.

The cool, clean water of this tranquil lake stretches along 20 winding kilometres on the upper reaches of the Hunter River through steep mountain foothills and lush pastoral country. The lake is up to 80 metres deep and contains more than double the water volume of Sydney Harbour. Accepted as probably the best and most accessible Bass and Golden Perch fishery in NSW. Lake Glenbawn is regularly stocked with both popular species plus Silver Perch.

In fact, Lake Glenbawn is the only major impoundment in NSW to be stocked with the much sought after Australian Bass. These hard hitting, brawling 'boomers' up to 56cms and 3-4 kilos are now attracting Bass fishing specialists from all over Australia. The prolific and giant Golden Perch (Yellowbelly) have been caught up to 15 kilos and 5-10 kilos are not uncommon. For variety, there are Silver Perch, huge Eel-tailed Catfish, and the occasional monster Murray Cod (when in season). All forms of fishing are permitted on the lake - boat trolling, spin casting, jigging, fly and bait fishing.

Lake Glenbawn is a popular venue for water skiers from all over NSW. The 20 Kilometres of clean, sheltered and unpolluted waterway is uncrowded, and mountain fresh. Good concrete boat ramp and plenty of trailer parking.
