Hillsborough Lake just been restocked
« on: August 25, 2010 »

Just in case it's of interest: Just saw a flat bed from some fish farm offloading several big containers of fish into a RIB, which in turn dumped them into the middle of the lake. No idea what type of fish they were.

(edit: Carp perhaps?)

Forgive me...is that a good or bad thing?

(edit: this page may confirm what's been dropped into the lake when it's updated at the start of September)

depends what type of angler u are, im mainly pike and trout, never fished for carp but wud like to, i think its a good thing as theres already enough rainbow trout fisheries here, and like pike fishing theres that chance of a really big fish. ;D
