Recreational Fish Management

Angling Notes

Ideal for shore based angling. Bait, lure and fly fishing will all be productive.

Protect Waters

Recreational anglers have a responsibility to look after fisheries resources for the benefit of the environment and future generations.

Do not bring live or dead fish, fish products, animals or aquatic plants into Tasmania.

Do not bring any used fishing gear or any other freshwater recreational equipment that may be damp, wet or contain water into Tasmania. Check, clean and dry your fishing equipment before entering Tasmania.

Do not transfer any freshwater fish, frogs, tadpoles, invertebrates or plants between inland waters.

Check your boat, trailer, waders and fishing gear for weed and other pests that should not be transferred before moving between waters.

Do not use willow (which is a plant pest) as a rod support as it has the ability to propagate from a strike.


The Dam wall and spillway are prohibited areas


Boating is not allowed.
