    Hi all
    As the title suggests! Posted on Facebook yesterday! I can not believe how the stocking program in Vic is thundering along! My local area is benefitting immensely! Stockings into Boosey Creek at Katamatite!:) Upstream of a creek I fish...the Nine Mile Creek! The Sevens Creek at Euroa!:cool: Lake Victoria at Shepparton! Another couple Shepparton lakes that I have never heard of! Kialla Lakes! Hell, they would likely stock my bathtub if I asked them! :eek:

    You must know the right people in the right places Jim. All that stocking at your back door. We had a look at the Kialla Lakes when we were thinking of moving to Shep. If I remember right they have fishing platforms, but not much shade, things could have changed since we were there

    Unless they occur there naturally...no!:) That's the thing...we are right in the middle of the area that the yellas occur naturally so yeah, we get them. Fisheries policy with stocking natives is to stock them where they occur naturally. Hence we don't get bass here!

    Kev...the lake is still rather 'shadeless' I think!
