    The DPI trout stocking records have not been updated since 2017.

    Does anyone out there know of any recent stocking in the Macquarie,Fish & Coxes rivers.

    cheers

    The rivers that you mention are stocked each season by members of CAS (Central Tablelands Acclimatisation society). The rivers had been stocked in 2018/19. Some of those rivers didn’t fair so well over this harsh drought effected summer of 2019/20. In places some of these central tableland streams rivers drying up in sections. The Macquarie is also facing difficult circumstances with a pipeline drawing water from an already fragile system to the growing demands of the nearby city Orange.

    The Trout Fry both Rainbow and Brown are provided by New England Dutton Trout hatchery each stocking season.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    The Fish & Macquarie have good flows now.

    I was devastated at the condition of the Fish this summer.

    Lets hope these fisheries recover over time.

    cheers
