Yes - but for BAS permit holders only
Keep the same area but allow petrol motors for BAS permit holders

 "leccies have the capacity to pollute should a battery be lost overboard"
The majority of batteries sold nowdays are sealed in fact they were mandatory at baroon pocket when it was under Aquagen.
The batteries also had to be adequatly secured so that they did not fall out of the boat in the event of a capsize.
They also banned yaks and canoes with leccies.
 Dont know now that SEQ water have it.
Cheers

When NPD was low, the fishing from the bank was great, mainly due to more available areas to fish. Now that it's full access is more limited.

Please give me 100% dam access for a yak and I'll happily pay my BAS, but not until then (my reasons have been outlined before). 

I'll just fish Lake K for now, at least the bank fishing is good.

My biggest concern in opening up north pined am to anybody is that that because it is close to brisbane it mite get over run with inexperienced people in cheap plastic kayaks. I reckon anyone who kayaks at somerset or wivenhoe would be use to planning the trip and prepared to spend money on petrol food etc to travel their and would mist likely plan fishing and safety and equipment better than someone who just had to drive 5 minutes down the road. Similarly if someone paid $100 for a fishing permit they would properly be better organised with less spur if the moment decisions like I often see people kayaking in small kayaks without pdf's in the bay in bad weather.

I properly haven't explained this as I mean it so my apologies but this is why I am happy to pay the prfma for a permit. I think they do a good job as well.

Certainly more people would choose to use this lake , but along with more use comes more money through the SIP . The notion of more inexperienced yakkers turning up is a furphy . We were all newbies at it at some stage . You don't have to be a rocket scientist to work a yak , whether that be on a lake , canal , creek or river . Nothing beats 'going light' for a quick fishing session i.e. 1 rod , a small amount of lures ,  can of drink and a spare hour or so. Common sense is all that is required and to stay within your physical limits .

Even IF this lake was given back to the people to access more freely , how many extras would really turn up?
I say this from the point of view using the Brisbane river bass turkey shoot as an example , yes plenty of extra fishos working the banks , but anecdotally not a noticeable increase in the amount of canoes /yaks plying the waters of the middle brisbane. And thats after the good bite has been telegraphed far and wide !!! Nothing demoralises a newbie quicker than not catching any fish.

If water quality is the issue with NPD , what makes them different to Wivenhoe or the middle brisbane river? Wivenhoe has an electric only rule , yet below Wivenhoe there is no law against the use of petrol engined boats in the river . The drinking water is not pumped from the river until it reaches Mt Crosby. Therefore why is NPD so anal about the use of canoes/kayaks in their dam?

Cheers,
Dave.

Well SEQ Water have more or less promised the draft management plan for North Pine by the end of the month, so we shouldn't be left holding our breathe for much longer to see their ideas!


Personally I believe yaks in the main basin might be in with a shot as it requires virtually no infrastructure, any sort of boat access is looking at 1/4 mill for a basic boat ramp, so very doubtful.

Looking at the votes in the poll to date, there is a definate trend there; one that SEQWater should be taking on board.  :tick

Well, a good week in to July, the "definitely by the end of June" release date for the draft management plan for NPD didn't happen!

Hopefully it wont be far away.

No word as yet, will make some enquiries monday.
Being an optimist one of my yaks is locked up a couple of hundred meters from the dam ready to go  ;D

I was up there last weekend with the kids having a swing and I must admit, thoughts of a surf rod with a 25gram slug hanging off it crossed my mind Steve.

We were all doing exactly that 2 or 3 years ago and cleaning up!
