Little Pine Lagoon spilling

The footbridge that sits idle most of the time really pays for itself in times of spill such as now (August 2013).

Anglers must at time wonder why IFS placed the foot bridge below the dam wall at Little Pine Lagoon. The bridge is the starting point for access to the western shore of the lagoon and the walking track to Lake Fergus. For most of the year it sits high and dry with no water flowing below it.

For the past couple of weeks Little Pine has been spilling and this is when the foot bridge comes into play. As can be seen in the photo the torrent of water in the river created by the spilling lagoon would be very dangerous to and near impossible to cross and it is at times like this that we should all appreciate the Angler Access Program.
