Murray cod stocked in Goulburn River

VICTORIA’S Department of Primary Industries has stocked 35,000 Murray cod fingerlings into the Goulburn River to encourage anglers back to areas devastated by the 2009 bushfires.

The stocking is in addition to the 100,000 Murray cod stocked annually in the Goulburn’s lower reaches.

The Murray cod fingerlings purchased with the Victorian Government’s bushfire recovery funds were stocked into the Goulburn River between Seymour and Yea.

VIC DPI says the Goulburn River between Yea and Seymour has the potential to be a first class Murray cod fishery, with the stretch boasting rich in-stream habitat in the form of timber snags and features good access for anglers.

Signs showing river access points are located at bridge crossings and reserves between Molesworth and Seymour to help visitors find a good fishing spot.

Anglers are reminded that the three month Murray cod closed season commenced on 1 September. For more about fish stocking visit
