Restocking Raffle


In 1990 the Kyalite Pub featured on Nationa lTV News. They had conducted the first private River restocking with native Fish fingerlings in Australia.  Memory tells us that we released about 10000 Murray cod, 15000 Perch (yellas) and 5000 Catfish. The knock-on effect was fantatstic.  Now almost every fishing club,tourist group, business or local councils in inland  NSW have become involved in  river restocking programs to some degree.

 Since then, In March of every year, regardless of conditions the KyalitePub has released about 12000 assorted  fingerlings into the Edward and Wakool Rivers.  Our first release was financed by a raffle run at the Pub.   Because of your continuing  support we have been able to maintain the momentum and every year,  during the Kyalite Pubs' Inter-Club Fishing Comp we draw the results of the current raffle.

   Our Fish release occurrs on the long weekend of March every year. If you want to bring the kids along and help you are more than welcome. Give Ken a ring at the Pub 03 50382221.

     OK.  I know the photos are old.  The Kyalite Pubs' website hs been a forgotten  lonely child in the past 10 months - hopefully that will improve in the immediate future.    Taking the opportunity to bring everyone up to pace with the current River Restocking Raffle. We are on our 29th Annual Raffle and this will be drawn at the Kyalite Pubs' Inter-Club Fishing Comp Sunday October 23th.

    The deal with this raffle is that it is fully self funded and each year $1000.00 is put toward restocking Kyalite rivers. This $1000.00 attracts a further $1000.00 from the Balranald Shire and further $2000.00 from the NSW Fisheries $ for $ project.   In all $4000.00 buys about 8000 Golden Perch and 4000 Murray Cod fingerlings. these are released into the Edwards as far upstream as Pine Grange and downstream past the junction into the Wakool about as far as Rosenhoe.  This release takes place on the Victorian Long weekend every year.  The tickets are out and about- selling well so call into the pub, see your local fishing club or even ring the pub 03 50382221 and we will be more than helpfull.
