Lake Boga restocking to lure recreational fishers

Lake Boga restocking to lure recreational fishers

The Victorian Government is boosting recreational fishing opportunities at Lake Boga by resuming stocking of the iconic Murray cod.

Minister for Agriculture and Food Security and Member for Swan Hill Peter Walsh helped local fishers release 15,000 cod fingerlings into the lake.

Over time these cod will lure more recreational fishers to the region, boosting Lake Boga’s economy and re-establishing the lake as a popular fishing destination.

It will have flow-on effects, not just for Lake Boga businesses which depend heavily on recreational activities such as fishing and boating, but also for Kerang and Swan Hill.

Lake Boga had been doing it tough in recent years after the lake completely dried up in 2008. The last time the lake was stocked was in 2005 and 2006 when small numbers of golden perch and Murray cod were released.

Restocking is again possible thanks to the spring and summer rainfall which refilled the lake. The fish will grow to a catchable size in the next three to five years and will help make Lake Boga a great recreational fishery again.

Revenue raised from the sale of recreational fishing licences has funded the restocking of Lake Boga.

Lake Boga is one of 17 lakes and rivers being restocked by Fisheries Victoria with native fish this month as inland waters recover from the drought.
