Fishing from the pier: You can now fish from the wooden pier at all times. Please keep the gate closed to stop the public from accessing it.
Fishing from the banks around the pier: During busy times we surround the Pier Banks with a rope fence to stop public access. When you see the fence is up, you can fish within this area. At other times it is off limits.
Access to view the fish farm: Fishing ticket holders (only) are permitted free access to view the raceways and fish ponds to see the farming process. Please keep your fishing ticket with you and access the farm via the processing unit.
