Lake Dulverton to brim with opportunities

Mr Mancey from the Oatlands Store, Southern Midlands Council Mayor Tony Bisdee, Minister for Primary Industries and Water Jeremy Rockliff and Southern Tasmania Licenced Anglers represntative Terry Byard.

Jeremy Rockliff, Minister for Primary Industries and Water announced today a $200 000 investment to increase participation in fresh water angling in Tasmania’s south.
The investment, to be rolled out over three years, will target projects from Oatlands to the Huon and include:

  • Developing a trophy trout fishery in Lake Dulverton. 
    The Inland Fisheries Service in partnership with the Southern Midlands Council will increase water levels in the lake and stock it with hundreds of brown trout.
  • Derwent Anglers Access
    The highly successful Derwent Anglers Access Project will be expanded with more access sites developed for the launching of canoes and float boats plus there will be further work to improve riverbank access along the Derwent River.
  • Southern Lake Fishery Feasibility
    A feasibility study will look into the potential for a new dedicated lake fishery in the Huon/Geeveston area.

These projects complement other IFS initiatives in the south including the recently completed angler access projects for the Huon and Tyenna rivers and the stocking of Craigbourne Dam.
