Penstock Lagoon – Electric Motor Only?

While I don’t fish it too often, I try to venture to Penstock Lagoon at least once a season. It’s steeped in fly fishing tradtion with superb mayfly hatches and is a designated ‘Fly Only’ waterway. There has been some recent concern raised by Inland Fisheries Service regarding the increase of anglers and the increase of petrol outboards. A recommendation has been made to perhaps make this destination ‘Electric Motor only’. This has a few punters up in arms, but if you have something to contribute to the debate, you better head along to the public meeting to be held at Miena Community Centre on 4th Feb at 6:00pm. Let’s hope that the outcome benefits the prolonged health of this fishery.
