The 1st of our batch of stockies have now gone into the river. We have again been well served by Bob who has supplied some beautiful fish once more.
This is the 1st year where we have been required to stock triploid fish and we are eager to understand the effect this has on the river. Please try to keep good catch records, the more we know about these fish the better.
We were unable to have the 1st batch marked but the second stocking will be of fish marked with a black spot below the gills, this will allow anglers to tell us how far they disperse and how long they remain in the river.
We are not asking anglers to change their behaviour in terms of catch and release, no rules have been changed, but we really do want as much feedback as possible to help with future planning.
