Restocking Hooks Anglers More rainbow, brown trout

Restocking Hooks Anglers More rainbow, brown trout

More than 187,000 trout have been stocked into formerly drought-affected lakes and reservoirs across Victoria, thanks in part to $231,000 from fishing licence revenue.
Ballarat's Lake Wendouree received the majority of 90,000 rainbow trout fry stocked in November while another 75,000 brown trout fry will be released into waterways around the state this month.
A large number of small trout had been sourced at short notice from the Department of Primary Industries' own hatchery at Snobs Creek and other private trout hatcheries in northeast Victoria.
To have so many lakes fill with water in one year, and to stock them so quickly, exceeded most freshwater anglers' expectations.
Anglers can look forward to improved fishing over the next few years with an increase in funding under the Coalition Government.
The Government has committed to returning all the revenue raised from the sale of recreational fishing licences to the industry for infrastructure works, stocking and education programs.

Other stockings into recovering waters include:
- 4,000 into Greenhill Lake, near Ararat, and 2,000 into Lake Beaufort
- 15,000 into Cairn Curran Reservoir near Maldon
- 3,000 into Teddington (Top) Reservoir and 1,500 in Teddington (Bottom) Reservoir
- 10,000 into Hepburn Lagoon and 7,000 into Newlyn Reservoir
- 2,000 into Deep Lake at Derrinallum
- 4,000 into Barkers Creek Reservoir, Harcourt, in addition to 1,000 stocked in June
- 10,000 into Rocklands Reservoir, Balmoral, in addition to 5,000 stocked in July
- 10,000 into Tullaroop Reservoir, Carisbrook
- 10,000 into Tooliorook Lake, Lismore
- 5,000 into Bostock Reservoir at Ballan
- 5,000 into Lake Bolac
- 4,000 into Batyo Catyo Lake at Rich Avon
- 5,000 into Lake Burrumbeet, near Ballarat
