ESD are giving notice that Murray Cod Season ends tonight:
The Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate is reminding anglers that the Murray cod fishing season will close at midnight on Saturday, 31 August 2013.
The Director of Environment Protection and Water Regulation, Daniel Walters, said the closed season will remain in effect until midnight 30 November 2013.
Anglers are still permitted to fish the Murrumbidgee River within the ACT (downstream from the junction with the Gudgenby River); the Molonglo River downstream of its junction with the Queanbeyan River; and Canberra’s urban lakes and ponds, which remain open to fishing all year round.
“During the closed season if you catch a Murray cod in these waterways you must return it to the water with the least amount of injury possible,” Mr Walters said.
