New parking area constructed for anglers on the Mersey RiverPublished on June 4, 2014
Anglers Alliance Tasmania and IFS have jointly funded the construction of a parking area on the western side of the Mersey River at Latrobe as part of the Mersey River Anglers Access project.
Previously anglers had to park on the narrow verge on the busy B19 (Frogmore Lane) to access the western side of the river.
In consultation with local landowners, Latrobe Council and DIER, AAT and IFS have jointly funded the construction of the car park for up to six vehicles. This will provide a welcome relief for the many anglers who like to fish this popular and productive stretch of the Mersey particularly early in the season when sea run trout are a focus.
