Trout from gill net at Four Springs Lake

On Monday 25th January an angler found a gill net set in Four Springs Lake. He immediately reported it to IFS officers.

Officers responded quickly and removed the net. It was found to contain 6 trout. Thankfully the net had not captured any platypus.

We thank the angler that quickly passing the information on.

If you notice any illegal fishing activity in our inland waters please report it to us on either 0438 338 530 (Compliance phone number) or 1300 INFISH (1300 463 474). Our Officers can’t be everywhere so your help to protect our valuable inland fisheries is greatly appreciated!
