The lake - which sits between the Ramsar-listed Swan Bay and the man-made can within The Point estate - is one of 32 lakes and rivers to have its native fish population bolstered as part of the $96 million ‘super stocking’ program - funded by fishing license fees.
Australian bass and estuary perch live in coastal flowing catchments and are highly prized by recreational anglers as native sportfish capable of living for over 40 years. Both species are stocked annually by the Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA).
“We’re giving more anglers the chance to catch our native fish this holiday season, with families set to enjoy Victoria’s beautiful waters this summer,” said Minister for Outdoor Recreation Steve Dimopoulos.
“This super stocking is boosting fishing for every Victoria, and is part of our $96 million investment in fishing and boating to build better facilities, stronger fishing clubs, expanded fish hatcheries for everyone to enjoy.”
