Metro stonker stocking
The fish of a lifetime is closer to home than ever for recreational anglers across Melbourne now that 1,000 large rainbow trout have been stocked into 16 of the city’s most popular fishing lakes.
Stonker stockings are funded by your fishing licence fees and the State Government’s $96 million package to improve fishing, boating, piers and aquaculture.
Family Fishing Lakes boast great access with waterside platforms, walking tracks, picnic areas and other facilities, creating a wonderful environment for people to get some fresh air whilst wetting a line close to home.
A daily bag limit of five trout applies in Family Fishing Lakes, of which only two trout can exceed 35cm. Learn more about catch limits online or by downloading the free ‘Vic Fishing’ app.
The Eildon Pondage and Goulburn River, between Eildon and Molesworth, will also be stocked with 2000 stonkers for trout season opening on Saturday 2 September 2023.
