Salmon stocking boosts South West Victorian fishing

Salmon stocking boosts South West Victorian fishing

More than 16,000 Atlantic salmon have been stocked into two South West Victorian lakes to boost recreational fishing opportunities. 8,160 Atlantic salmon were released into Lake Bullen Merri and 8,500 into Lake Purrumbete, both near Camperdown.

The crater lakes of Purrumbete and Bullen Merri are popular freshwater fisheries with well deserved reputations for producing quality trout and salmon. Each lake received a mix of yearling 30-60 gram salmon and two-year-old fish averaging more than 200 grams.

The two lakes were stocked annually with brown trout and rainbow trout, and also received Chinook salmon when available. Atlantic salmon have been stocked this year to maintain a salmon interest in these crater lakes and as an interim arrangement until Chinook salmon become available again.

Atlantic salmon were last stocked into Lake Bullen Merri and Lake Purrumbete between 2002 and 2005. The most recent salmon stockings will provide anglers with some great new angling opportunities.
