Stock Stony Creek Reservoir with yellowbelly

This petition had 271 supporters

Geelong freshwater anglers and in particular those who are restricted to shore based fishing have very limited options in regards to targetable species in our local lakes and impoundments. Brown trout and rainbow trout are virtually the only stocked fish we have access to with in an hours drive from the Geelong CBD. 

although Trout are a popular target species for a majority of anglers, their peak bite times are typically over winter.

This petition is to push for yellowbelly to be stocked into Stony Creek res to give the anglers of Geelong some variety in species we have close access to and provide what could potentially be a fantastic native fishery, in particular over summer, with in half an hour of the Geelong CBD.

Stony Creek res has all the requirements for yellowbelly to thrive and grow to trophy size. Its very deep at one end and the water is crystal clear, it also has a very healthy population of yabbies that assumedly would make up a majority of the yellowbellys diet and promote exceptional growth rates.

please share this petition and lets push for a trophy yellowbelly fishery with in half an hours drive from the centre of Geelong!
