Caravan parks benefiting from rainbow trout boost

Fishing with the kids this school holiday season? Double their luck at some of Victoria’s favourite camping haunts with rainbow trout hitting lakes and rivers April 1.

Aspiring anglers lodging at Surfside Holiday Park and Marysville Caravan Park can chase the docile species thanks to Fisheries Victoria’s ongoing school holiday stocking program.

This quarter’s release includes Eildon Pondage Weir, Pertobe Lake and Marysville Lake among others in Victoria’s popular holiday precincts, with urban waterways also benefiting.

Fish released for the school holidays are ready to catch, unlike yearlings released in greater numbers during other stocking programs.
