    Tazzy,
    We put ~15k silver and `5k goldens out at Connoly this season, and do so about every season. I am not sure about Cooby.

    Cheers,

    Cammo,
    There is some pretty patchy details about the survival rates of stocked fingerlings as it depends on so many variables.

    From most of the data circling around, I beleive it is in the order of 30% survival of fingerlings to legal size. DPI are working this year on increasing those odds by looking at predator awareness with the fingerlings and also looking at better methods of acclimation/ introduction of the fingerlings into the impoundments.

    Cheers,
    Matt
