A correction to the Tasmanian Inland Fishing Code 2019-20

The front cover of the Tasmania Inland Fishing Code 2019-20, the essential pocket guide of inland recreational fishing rules for the 2019-20 season.
The Tasmanian Inland Fishing Code 2019-20 - front cover

There is a mistake in the printed version of the Tasmanian Inland Fishing Code 2019-20.

On page 27 – it says:

Lake fisheries rules

  • a minimum size limit of 300 mm

  • a daily bag limit of 12 fish

  • open to all fishing methods

  • a season of 3/8/19 - 3/5/20

Examples: Arthurs Lake, Bronte Lagoon, Lake Echo, Laughing Jack Lagoon, Meadowbank Lake, Pine Tier Lagoon, Wayatinah Lagoon.

Bronte Lagoon and Meadowbank Lake SHOULD NOT be in the list of examples. They have different rules.

  • Bronte Lagoon is NOT open to all fishing methods, but is fly and artificial lure only (all the other rules are right)
  • Meadowbank Lake has a minimum size of 300mm (with only 2 over 500mm), is open to all fishing methods, is open all year and a daily bag limit of 5 fish.

Meadowbank Lake is listed again, and correctly, in the River and Lake Fishery Exceptions table on page 31.

Bronte Lagoon is NOT listed again in the table.

We corrected the mistake in the electronic version available for download from the website,

Sorry for any confusion.
