A fishy story

I have marvelled for many years over Lake George, the disappearing lake near Canberra.

In 1996 I commuted from Canberra to the NSW Southern Tablelands to work on the Goulburn Post and I well remember water lapping at the then single-carriage highway that skirted the lake.

Then for years it was bone dry. Where had all the water gone? A mystery! It was as if someone had let the plug out.

Lately, it’s filled up again from heavy rain.

The other week I passed it on the way to Sydney and I’ve never seen it so full.

I wondered if there were fish in there, and, if so, how did they get there?

So I looked it up on Google and was amazed at all the species in there.

Then I realised I was looking at Lake George in Washington!
