    I spent a couple of very relaxing hours at a local lake today, and chalked up another Donut. While there I was told that the lake may not get stocked anymore. I have heard this all before, but this time the ball has started rolling. I would say the reasons for this are political. I have fished the other family fishing lake near home on a few occasions so I still have somewhere to drown worms.

    How reliable is the person who told you? Why do you think it is political? Also, are there carp in there? If so, I wouldn't worry about it too much as you can still chase them. I think I remember you pledging revenge on a largish carp that broke you off a while ago!
    Cheers

    Asks the hard questions!

    Hi Jim, The lake is situated within the Botanic Gardens, The friends of the Botanic gardens are very nice people, but there are a few anti fishos among them, everyone is entitled to there opinion. The person who told me about the stocking is very high up at the gardens so he would know what is going on.

    Hi Jeff, they stock it with Rainbows, 500 twice a year.
    The other lake where I will be fishing in the future, they stock it with 600 Rainbows twice a year.
    This lake is one of the suburban lakes to be stocked by VFA with Murray Cod, Silver and Golden Perch in the near future. Also Melton weir is on the list to be stocked.
