Lake Selfe Trout Size The trout in Lake Selfe appear to reach a maximum size of 3kg (about 6 1/2 pounds). I guess this is a result of the limited food supply available. Without the huge numbers of smelt and bullies that you get in places like Lake Taupo the fish are just not able to grow any bigger. I think it is only the browns that reach 3kg in Lake Selfe.
Lake Selfe is a very pleasant, picturesque lake to fish.
