Trout and salmon for Craigbourne Dam

Minister Rockliff with one of the Atlantic Salmon released into Craigbourne Dam today

Today we stocked 300 wild brown trout and 105 Atlantic salmon into Craigbourne Dam.

The wild brown trout from the highlands averaging around half a kilogram, will grow well in Craigbourne Dam and will help underpin the fishery for the coming season.

The salmon were between 6-9kg and were donated by Huon Aquaculture Company.

The Minister responsible for Inland Fisheries, Jeremy Rockliff, was on hand to see the release and said ”The coming 2017-18 trout season is shaping up as even better than last year and I would encourage as many people as possible to buy a licence and enjoy the great trout fishing that Tasmania has to offer”.
