Fish in Middle River. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 16 October 1915

Fish in Middle River. The assistant hon. secretary of the Lith- gow Progress Association had been promised by the Fisheries Department some perch (Australian bass) for distribution in the Clarence railway dam and Lithgow water supply, but was refused some for placing in the Cox, Lett, and Middle rivers. It was stated that there was plenty in the Nepean River, and that these should be able to get up into the rivers referred to, through the Warragamba and thence into the Cox River, but as they had not done so, these fish evi- dently would not thrive in the local waters. The assistant secretary of the Progress As- sociation, in reply, pointed out that the fish, no doubt, were prevented, owing to a bar across the Cox River below Katoomba, and owing to shallows in the river which be- come dry, or nearly so, in the summer. The Progress Association assistant secretary   has recently received the following reply from the Fisheries Department, dated Oc- tober 8: — 'With referenc...
