Mount Isa Fish Stocking Group
The Mount Isa Fish Stocking Group (MIFSG) is a volunteer community benefit group whose primary focus is the development of fresh water recreational fishery in the lakes around Mount Isa.
The Lake Moondarra Fishing Classic is the primary fundraiser for the organisation and funds raised during the event are used to stock local dams with barramundi and sooty grunter fingerlings.
The event was spawned by the MIFSG to encourage keen anglers and the community to utilise the local lakes for recreational and entertainment purposes.
The first competition was held on the weekend of December 12, 1999. With fantastic weather conditions and the warmer temperature of the water, the weekend made for good quality fishing. These days the MIFSG hosts the Fishing Classic every year on the last full weekend in October.
There are plenty of prizes on offer for all ages and abilities as well as lucky nomination prizes.
