Sail-World.com : Trout stocked across Victoria for school holiday fun
Trout stocked across Victoria for school holiday fun


During the school holidays children across Victoria have a great opportunity to catch their first fish thanks to an extensive fish stocking program by the Victorian Coalition Government.

Agriculture and Food Security Minister Peter Walsh said almost 30,000 ‘ready-to-catch’ rainbow trout had been released into more than 60 lakes across Victoria for the school holidays.

'There are wonderful fishing spots across Melbourne and the rest of Victoria for kids to have their first fishing experience,' Mr Walsh said. 'The waters stocked through the Family Fishing Lakes Program have been selected because
they are close to urban centres or regional towns, providing a great opportunity for children to get out there and learn about fishing.'

Mr Walsh said Fisheries Victoria’s fish stocking program was a great way to encourage families to go fishing and a good use of recreational fishing licence revenue.'Most lakes provide easy access with a variety of fishing platforms and bankside tracks, making it even easier for families to head out to their favourite fishing spot this month,' Mr Walsh said.

The rainbow trout that are being released for the school holidays are advanced yearlings suitable to be caught immediately. Rainbow trout are a good option for children or those trying fishing for the first time, because they are relatively easy to catch and take a variety of baits and lures.

Anglers are reminded that a daily bag limit of five trout applies, of which only two can exceed 35 centimetres. At this time of year, trout cannot be taken from rivers. For more details refer to the Victorian Recreational Fishing Guide, which is available free of charge from most good fishing tackle shops, Department of Environment and Primary
Industries (DEPI) offices or by ringing the Customer Service Centre on 136 186.

Information contained within the Victorian Recreational Fishing Guide is also accessible through the Recreational Fishing App for smartphones, available through the DEPI website. For a full list of waters stocked with rainbow trout for the school holidays, visit DEPI VIC website
