Rowville Lakes stocked with rainbow trout


THE Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA) has announced Rowville Lakes has been stocked with catchable‐size rainbow trout for the September school holidays.

Member for South Eastern Metropolitan Tien Kieu recently joined local fishers and the VFA to celebrate the stocking of 400 rainbow trout into Rowville Lakes.

The VFA says, rainbow trout are a fantastic species for inexperienced fishers as they’re easy to catch and take a variety of baits and lures. They also taste great, meaning families can take home a few for the dinner table.

Some of the other waters to be stocked with catchable size trout for these school holidays include Albert Park Lake, Lilydale Lake, Casey Fields Lake, Emerald Lake, Pakenham Lake and Ferntree Gully Quarry.

Most of these waters feature improved access with access platforms, walking tracks, picnic areas and other family‐friendly facilities, creating a safe and convenient environment for people to wet a line.

The stocking is funded by recreational fishing licence fees and the Target One Million plan to get more people fishing, more often.

A daily bag limit of 5 trout applies to family fishing lakes, of which only 2 trout can exceed 35cm.
