Yesterday saw many inland waters come to the end of their 2019-20 season.

Waters managed for rainbow trout closed:

  • Dee Lagoon
  • Junction Lake
  • Lake Meston
  • Lake Rowallan
  • Lake Skinner
  • Lake Youd
  • Mersey River above Lake Rowallan
  • River Leven upstream of Loongana Road
  • Weld rivers (both North and South)

It was the end of the first year of the river season extension trial, closing:

  • Brumbys Creek       downstream from Weir 1 to the Macquarie River (Note: the day use facilities are currently closed).
  • Macquarie River      downstream from the junction with Brumbys Creek to the South Esk River.
  • Meander River        downstream from Strath Bridge (on the C735) to the South Esk River
  • South Esk River       downstream from the bridge on Storys Creek Road at Avoca to Beams Hollow upstream of Lake Trevallyn, delineated by a straight line between grid reference 506358E 5406426N and 506467E 5406414N.

And Lakes Mackintosh and Rosebery closed.

But it is not the end of fishing for the 2019-20 season. There are many waters open all year. You can find the full list on our website, along with information about fishing during the Roadmap to Recovery.
