Citizen Science Supporting the Trout Strategy

Further to our recent post on trials of larger trout being stocked. I’ve received the following advice from DPI:

DPI Fisheries is releasing larger Rainbow Trout into selected waters to combat the negative effects of Redfin predation. We are requesting all information from recaptured tagged fish to be submitted via our online recapture form at This information helps determine growth rates and the sufficient size class capable of avoiding Redfin predation.

Here is a flyer with more information including the reward.

To see a full list of stocking sites in NSW, our interactive map can be accessed at:

Simply click on any of the green (River) or red (Impoundment) icons and the historical stocking data for each species will be displayed on a graph.

The waters where the tagged trout have been released are currently:

Oberon Dam
Lake Wallace (Wallerawang not Nimmitabel)
Lake Lyell
Carcoar Dam
Fish River
Duckmaloi River
