Hinze do not know how their stocking group are going as never hear anything and the stocking figures on their website are hopelessly out of date.

I reckon the system needs to cater for small start up grants, something like  - say a grand a year  for 2 years for a new impoundment, then if the stocking group is still going and fish are being caught, eligible for full entry.

Minimum facilities (not much, just somewhere to park and launch) and access requirement as well. (No stocking closed waters)

OK, so the updated list is:

Advancetown Lake (Hinze Dam) ADDED

Atkinsons Dam ADDED

Lake Baroon (Baroon Pocket Dam) - ADDED

Lake Dyer (Bill Gunn Dam)

Lake Barambah (Bjelke-Petersen Dam)

Lake Boondooma

Lake Borumba

Lake Dalrymple (Burdekin Falls Dam)

Callide Dam

Cania Dam

Connolly Dam

Lake Cooby (Cooby Creek Dam)

Coolmunda Dam

Cressbrook Dam

Eungella Dam

Ewen Maddock Dam ADDED

Lake Maraboon (Fairbairn Dam)

Lake Glenlyon (Glenlyon Dam aka Pike Creek Dam)

Gordonbrook Dam

Lake Gregory (Isis Balancing Storage)

Kinchant Dam

Lake Kurwongbah (Sideling Creek Dam) ADDED

Lake Lenthall (Lenthalls Dam)

Leslie Dam 

Maroon Dam 

Moogerah Dam 

Lake MacDonald

Lake Monduran (Fred Haigh Dam)

Lake Samsonvale (North Pine Dam)

Lake Proserpine (Peter Faust Dam)

Lake Somerset

Storm King Dam

Teemburra Dam

Theresa Creek Dam

Lake Tinaroo (Tinaroo Falls Dam)

Lake Wivenhoe

Wuruma Dam



I'll throw it out there... Should:
- Connolly Dam (aka Silverwood Dam) be removed as there virtually no public access, only access is for local fishing club members.
- Gordonbrook Dam be removed as it is almost universally closed by local council? (wasted money that could be used elsewhere)

** Remember it is up to the various fish management groups to nominate the lake they stock for inclusion in the SIP. I'm looking for what the general angling community AS WELL AS restocking groups consider appropriate.

Therefore this topic will be moved to general chat.

Paradise is not established so its out.  Connolly is almost private water, so it should be dropped.  If access to Gordonbrook cannot be maintained it should be dropped.

Any idea if Clear Island Waters and Robina Lake would be eligible.

Depends on 2 things....

1 - an application to join the program from the fish stocking group, and
2- the selection criteria applied.

Based on the past applications, I would say the answer would be no. But as there is no longer a SIP committee OR any transparency in the process, it  could well depend on the mood of the letter opener on the day.

Is Robina Lake officially stocked along with Clear Island Waters or tacked on? TP can you help?

CIW may not be eligible as it has the best functioning fishway in SEQ  :popcorn)
Why not Robina Waters impounded freshwater with public access.
Both established fisheries.
