Tenterfield Dam’s stock of fish was further boosted on Friday with the addition of around 500 rainbow trout, in the range of 22-27 centimetres. Hopefully the larger ones will be looking to hook themselves on a line at the dam’s Family Fishing Day coming up this Saturday.
Some 300 of the new additions are tagged. Anyone snagging one of these is asked to measure it and report to Fisheries so that growth rates can be monitored.
