News Views & Press Releases / Rainbow stocking

Rainbow stocking

This week we stocked three important fisheries with large Rainbow trout averaging 5kg. The waters stocked are Craigbourne dam, Brushy Lagoon and Lake Kara. Each water received 300 fish each and will provide excellent fishing in and compliment many of our other popular fisheries that are performing very well.

Special thanks go to Huon Aquaculture and Springfield Fisheries for making these fish available. If there is an opportunity to access more surplus fish from any of the commercial hatcheries we will happily look at stocking again prior to Christmas with salmon or rainbow trout if the conditions are favourable. We avoid stocking these domestic fish into lakes when the weather becomes too hot over summer with elevated water temperatures that may  impact on their welfare.

Woods Lake compliance activities

Last weekend Inland Fisheries and Tasmania Police teamed up and conducted boat safety checks at Woods Lake in the Central Highlands of Tasmania. Whilst boat safety checks of equipment and PFD use are regular patrols conducted by IFS, on this occasion boat operators were also breath tested due to disturbing reports of some people’s behavior whilst at the Lake. The Marine Safety (Misuse of Alcohol) Act 2006 governs the legal limit of recreational boat operators to 0.05 of a gram of alcohol in Tasmania and 0.00 for commercial boat operators. It was pleasing to see that everyone tested was under the legal limit on the day of testing, however 5 infringement notices were issued to people not wearing their PFDs when required. Failing to wear PFDs and excessive alcohol consumption have been factors in several fatal boating accidents in Tasmania over the years. Please enjoy your fishing and boating, but wear your lifejacket when required and be mindful of your relevant alcohol limit, as these patrols will be common this season at Inland Waters.

Training to protect our waterways

Recently, Rob Freeman of the Inland Fisheries Service presented to a group of Forest Practices Officers (FPO’s) as part of their requirement to develop and maintain the necessary skills to assess ecological values relating to forestry operations.  Over the week the FPO’s received training on fauna, flora and legislative requirements.  As part of this training Rob presented to the group about the need to recognise and consider the presence of freshwater fish, specifically threatened freshwater fish, such as the Swan galaxias, Clarence galaxias and dwarf galaxias.  Following the presentation, the group visited the Sandspit River at Wielangta, were they observed five different species of fish and discussed the need to maintain suitable habitat freshwater fish.

Warning on Little Pine Lagoon

Hydro Tasmania is working to recover and re-establish the Boat Boom that broke free of its shore based mooring during a recent storm event.

Until such time that the Boat Boom is back in place, boating anglers on Little Pine Lagoon are advised to stay at least 100m clear of the dam wall

Road maintenance at Four Springs Lake

In response to the popularity of Four Springs Lake since the start of the season the IFS has graded and gravelled the access road.

The lake continues to fish well for persistent anglers with the first signs of mayfly hatches occurring during recent mild days.

Anglers are reminded that fires are not permitted on the lake shore. This helps to protect the natural values of the reserve and the surrounding production forests.

Weather and Water Updates / Wyaralong Dam; Weed??
« Last post by Member on October 10, 2017, 04:42:20 PM »
Does anyone have any info on the demise of the once prolific weed growth at Wyaralong? I made my first visit of the year yesterday, all the usual spots were devoid of life and the water was almost black!!
There was a huge blue-green algae bloom not long ago. That might have something to do with it.
