Lake Barrington and Brushy Lagoon stocked with big rainbow trout and Atlantic salmon

IFS' Adam Scurrah releasing a large Atlantic salmon into Brushy Lagoon.

Last week (third week in July) the IFS stocked Lake Barrington and Brushy Lagoon with ex-brood stock Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout. These fish were kindly donated by Huon Aquaculture from their Springfield Hatchery. Both the Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout averaged 3 kg, ranging between two and four kilograms. One hundred and fifty of each species was stocked into each of these fisheries.
Anglers are reminded that there is a five fish daily bag limit on these waters with no more than two fish over 600 mm in length.
