Description

Dust off your rods - the Springfield Lakes Pest Fishing Classic returns on Saturday 13 October 2018. Come along and help reduce pest fish numbers in Spring Lake, with your chance to win great prizes for doing so.

An all-day format with families in the morning and competitor groups in the afternoon, as well as plenty of on land activities for the non-fishing folk.

The joint event support by Lendlease, Ipswich City Council, Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, Biosecurity and Freshwater Fish Stocking Association of Qld will be strictly managed under a Biosecurity Queensland pest fishing permit through fishing event managment group 2 Bent Rods, to create awareness of noxious fish species and their impact on the local biodiversity.

There will be education sessions provided on the pest species during registration for the event, as well as trained helpers to assist you to correctly dispose of catches in the dedicated waste bins provided.

Displays from

* Biosecurity Qld

Proceeds from the registration fee will be used to restock native species in the lake.
