5 Reservoirs to be opened for Recreational Fishing

RecFish SA are thrilled to report that many years of hard work have finally culminated in the decision to open 5 Reservoirs to recreational fishing. Currently the Warren Reservoir is open and 12 month permits can be purchased by following the link on the right. The Hindmarsh Valley, Baroota, Bundaleer and Tod Reservoirs are due to be opened to the public soon. RecFish SA have long fought for recreational fishing access to our freshwater impoundments and with $400,000 budgeted to kick off this program, we hope this is just the beginning of new fishing locations for SA's fishers. RecFish SA will continue to work with the relevant departments to achieve access, fish stocking and habitat enhancement.  Check back regularly for updates.
