Many people have asked regarding people fishing in the wetlands. This question was posed to council and their response can be seen below:
Thank you for contacting us regarding this issue. We have received other complaints regarding this issue in other wetlands as well.
It is not illegal to fish in wetlands according to state legislation as long as the fisher is in possession of a fishing licence and is doing so in the correct manner. If you suspect that someone is fishing illegally, you can report it to Fisheries Victoria: http://agriculture.vic.gov.au/fisheries/enforcement/13fish-intelligence-reporting-line
