Shannon River

Hi everyone!


Can anybody tell me if it's ok to fish the Shannon river around Pemberton area? D.E.C website lists fishing as an activity then found a PDF which stated it was closed however this info seemed old.

Thanks Champion, that is from the same PDF I read. Looks like it came into effect in 07 which would mean the ban is lifted this year. Any idea on the month?

I'm pretty sure they extended the 5 year ban again, read it somewhere. It's listed as closed in the marron pamphlet I have and the south coast region pamphlet (Both current).


The reason for not fishing is to provide an untouched resource for comparisons with other systems. I wouldn't fish there at all to be honest mate.
