Bass released in lake

EASTERN Victoria MLC Jane Garrett donned waders and got into the spirit of things when she helped release 875 bass into Lake Guthridge, Sale, on Wednesday.

Ms Garrett joined local fishing club representatives to restock the lake as part of the state government’s plan to encourage recreational fishing.

She said the restocking program was fabulous for children and families, providing entertainment and fun activities for all ages.
