Consult your Fishing Code to check if a fishery is open

As well as your Code the fishing signs at a location will also indicate whether a water is open to fishing.

It has come to the attention of IFS that there have been people fishing in Dee Lagoon in recent weeks. To protect rainbow trout stocks and enable spawning Dee Lagoon does not open until 4 October 2014 and closes on 31 May 2015.

The same open season applies to Junction Lake, Lake Meston, Lake Rowallan, Lake Youd, Lake Skinner, Mersey River above Lake Rowallan, River Leven upstream of Loongana Road Bridge, Weld River (North) upstream of grid reference E575769 N5443349 and Weld River (South) upstream of grid reference E479455 N5234171.

On a recent patrol at Dee Lagoon officers apprehended a person for fishing without an angling licence in this closed water. Of note the person was driving an unregistered boat without a licence and without the required safety equipment.

Before setting out to fish check your 2014-15 Fishing Code issued with your licence to see if the water if open to fishing.
