Recreational fishers looking to wet a line at one of the state’s stocked impoundments this Easter, are reminded to purchase a permit before heading out.

Fisheries Queensland SIPS Coordinator Danielle Knutsen said purchasing a stocked impoundment permit (SIP) was a simple process.

'SIPs can be purchased quickly and easily online giving freshwater angling enthusiasts more time to do what they like most,' she said.

'Online permits are fast, easy, convenient and less prone to getting damaged or lost.

'You also don’t have to wait to receive it. The permit is emailed to you straight away making it a great option for those who have left their purchase to the last minute.'


Ms Knutsen said permits can also be purchased over the counter at a number of outlets throughout Queensland, or by calling 13 25 23 during business hours to order one over the phone.

'Details of outlets can be found on our website at www.fisheries.qld.gov.au,' she said.

'Regardless of which method you purchase your permit, they cost just $7.70 for a weekly permit, $38.60 for a yearly permit or $33.55 for concession cardholders. People under 18 years of age do not require a permit.

'The permit covers all 32 dams on the scheme, with a range of species available to recreational fishers.

'These dams are well known as some of the best places to fish for iconic freshwater species such as barramundi, Australian bass, golden perch and Murray cod.

'Enjoy the dam fishing experience this holiday season, and don’t forget to keep your permit on you at all times.'

For more information on the dams involved in the SIPS and to purchase a permit, visit www.fisheries.qld.gov.au or call 13 25 23.
