Access to rec fishing haven labelled a “disgrace”

The public access track to a recreational fishing haven on the NSW South Coast is in a disgraceful state – according to Shooters and Fishers Party MLC Robert Brown.

“National Parks and Wildlife Service management of [Lake] Meroo recreational fishing haven access track is a disgrace,” Brown said today.

An inspection tour of the lake at the weekend by Brown and another Shooters and Fishers Party candidate Max Castle, revealed the access track was in a dire state of repair.

“I find it hard not to think this neglect of maintenance is a deliberate attempt to discourage access to the recreational fishing haven,” said Brown.

“The annexation of the fishing haven was done in a late night session of Parliament, and was hidden away in a Cypress Forest Bill. The Shooters and Fishers Party voted against the Bill, but it was passed by the Greens and the Labor Party. It is another grubby deal between the Greens and Labor.

“It is even more galling because of the fact that recreational fishing havens were in fact paid for by fishing licence fees, and now the Government is locking out recreational fishers”, he said.

Brown said the Shooters and Fishers Party will continue to prevent such lockouts in the future, and will ensure that the next Government is also kept honest in dealing with recreational fishers of NSW.
