Junior Angling

The Victorian Fisheries Authority stocks larger yearling rainbow trout into small waters in or adjacent to population centres throughout Victoria that are safe and accessible for both junior and disabled anglers. Most releases are made to coincide with the 2nd and 3rd term school holidays when the hatchery fish have reached a catchable size and when water temperatures are best suited for trout survival. It also provides angling for juniors during the school holidays. Waters stocked in this Basin as part of this program are Caulfield Racecourse Dam, Emerald Lake, Jack Roper Reserve, Rowville Lakes, Roxburgh Park Lakes, and Whittlesea Botanical Gardens.
