Congratulation to LAFMA for getting some for the Wyaralong Dam stocking program.  :Clap)

Now to get fisheries regs changed so anglers can legally fish for them.

Previous river fish must be breeding as well Fitz. Had a member advise that they caught a 14cm fish from the dam. We have yet to release any cod in the dam as of yet.

Not necessarily MSG, it was quite legal for farmers to stock their dams before construction of the wall.  I know the original owners, and current owners of Wyaralong Station are keen anglers.

At the moment they are totally protected in Wyaralong, they'll be viable when the rules are changed.

Congrats on your first Cod stocking guys.  :Clap)
I did notice the small size of the fingerlings, did you have to get them quick, I only ask as when I was with BVA we used to get them from Russell at around 75 t0 100 mm long to reduce possible predation.

I also saw that old reprobate Willman standing around looking the part as usual, a good man to have around a club, lots of knowledge and humour :thumbsup
