Fishing is at own risk
All persons access the premises of the Cloongee Fishery and fish at their own risk.
Cars are parked at the owners risk.
Make Safety a Priority
At the Cloongee Fishery, you will be fishing for wild fish in an entirely natural environment.
Every effort is made to maintain the highest standards of safety. However, many conditions are beyond reasonable control. Also, some conditions may vary without any warning. As a result, fishing can be hazardous, so at all times please make your own safety and the safety of others an overriding priority.
Wading can be Dangerous
Anglers wade into the river at their own risk. In many places, the waters are too deep for wading and the current can be extremely fast. Wading is not allowed unless anglers are wearing a life jacket.
Enjoy your fishing!
