New Sportfishing Opportunities at Porters Creek Dam 

 

A new catch and release sportfishery at Porters Creek Dam near Milton on the NSW South Coast is expected to become a popular destination for local and visiting anglers.

NSW DPI Fisheries Deputy Director General Sean Sloan said that the new fishery is the result of close work between the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) and Shoalhaven City Council.

“This is a new and exciting fishing catch and release location where anglers can target native Australian Bass,” Mr Sloan said.

“This new catch and release sportfishery has opened just in time for the Australian Bass season opening on 1 September.

“Stocking of juvenile Australian Bass in the dam has previously been undertaken by NSW DPI with assistance from the Shoalhaven Council.

“This is a new and exciting fishing catch and release location where anglers can target native Australian Bass”

“This work is part of the Native Fish Stocking program and has successfully established a productive fishery for these iconic sportfish.

“The work by DPI and Shoalhaven City Council to create a new fishery at Porters Creek Dam will provide opportunities that can be enjoyed for generations to come.”

Mr Sloan said DPI will continue to work with Shoalhaven City Council to maintain and promote fishing access at the dam.

“The dam will be managed in collaboration with the council as a catch and release fly and lure only fishery, that is, no bait fishing allowed,” Mr Sloan said.

“New signage will also be installed at Porters Creek Dam to ensure that the public is aware of these changes.

“DPI Fisheries Officers will also be patrolling the area to ensure that these rules are being followed.”

DPI’s fish stocking and access programs are supported with funds from the Recreational Fishing Trust and is a great example of fishing licence fees being re-invested back into improving recreational fishing.

The public is encouraged to report illegal or suspected illegal fishing activity to the Fishers Watch Phoneline on 1800 043 536 or report online via the form at: https://fal.cn/3gJWh

Horizon

 

There is a place between sea and sky – a sacred realm, where the sun rises and falls and the light is new.

From two of the world’s great First Nations comes a brand-new work: Horizon. Some call it a feeling, some call it the mother spirit. It’s the place where sea meets sky, the horizon we all look to, the compass that guides us home.

In Bangarra Dance Theatre’s first main stage cross-cultural collaboration, leading Māori choreographer Moss Te Ururangi Patterson joins beloved Bangarra alumna Deborah Brown. Together they guide the award-winning ensemble in stories that honour their mother countries and the spirit that calls them home.

Brown is a proud descendent of the Wakaid Clan and Meriam people in the Torres Strait, with heritage from far across the seas in Scotland. She carries strength and resilience from her ancestors. Patterson was born in Turangi near Lake Taupō, and describes the sense of home as something alive, that he carries like a beating heart.

To open the program, Saibailayg (Saibai Islander) Sani Townson expands his acclaimed work Kulka, debuted in Dance Clan in 2023, to make a thrilling opening piece paying homage to Sani’s grandfather and his Torres Strait heritage.

Come explore the cultural forces that bind us together, across oceans and eons. Experience the resilience of the First Peoples of the Oceania region, that extends across the continent now known as Australia, the Torres Strait Islands and Aotearoa, our southern neighbour.

Horizon is a double bill opening with Kulka by Bangarra alum Sani Townson, followed by the primary piece, The Light Inside, choreographed by Bangarra alum Deborah Brown and Māori choreographer and Arts Laureate Moss Te Ururangi Patterson.

EVENT DETAILS:

  • When – 8-17 of August
  • Where – QPAC

Andy Golledge, a prominent figure in the Australian alt-country scene, aims to deliver a mature and cohesive experience with this album, showcasing his unique ‘Alt-Country-esque Dad Rock’ style. Following the success of his debut album, ‘Strength of a Queen,’ which won ‘Best Independent Country Album/EP’ at the AIR Awards 2023, Andy Golledge continues to make waves in the music scene. His debut album charted impressively on ARIA’s Top Vinyl Albums and Australian Country Albums, earning nominations at the ARIA Awards 2022 and CMAA Golden Guitar Awards 2023.
