The Hinze Dam is the Gold Coast’s main drinking water supply and premier freshwater fishery. The 1,500 hectare dam is stocked with Bass, Golden Perch (Yellowbelly), Silver Perch and Saratoga.

The Hinze Dam Fish Management Committee is charged with stocking the dam. In 2014 there were 80,000 bass fingerlings released in the dam. All funds for stocking are raised by Anglers through a permit system.
