Fielding Road Reserve

Locked gate at end of bitumen. Can walk to river from gate, a distance of approx 200m. No camping. No vehicle access to river. Occasionally the gate is left unlocked & you can drive right down to river bank; if you have a 4x4 you can take track down to peninsula into river (aka Beaver's Reach or Beaver Stretch)

Tiwn Bridges

This is pick of all access points from Wivenhoe to the tidal water at Colleges Crossing.

Vehicles can be drive right to the waters edge here.

This location is the bottom end of the hole that begins at Lowood Bend (approx 5-6km upstream).

Downstream of the bridge is some faster flowing water for a couple hundred meters to the new Highway Bridge where a smaller hole extends down to the England Creek Junction.

4x4 vehicles can be driven on gravel / sand tracks from Twin Bridges along river to under highway bridge.

6:00AM but  come and see me when you get there Wayne, will sort you out as soon as we can.

We will be handing out competitor cards friday night & having briefing / seminar then. Sat morning is the opening, weather report, grab your key & head off. Keeping it as short n sweet as possible sat am to allow more time on water. Nobody is allowed on water until after 6am so we will have the opening at 6am.

Also going to ask everyone to fill in a Daily Trip Plan out lining where you intend to go & ETA for return. These will go into a closed box & only opened if someone doesn't return on time, we know where to send Emergency Services.  :thumb

Cheers,

fitz..

Has launching at Figtree Lookout site been approved yet, because I'm wondering will this area  be protected from the Westerly predicted and save a hard paddle back for the ones fishing the dam.

Yes, confirmed by head ranger today. Entrants will be permitted to launch at Figtree Outlook, travel north/west along shoreline to access the permitted fishing area west of the buoyline. This the shortest route to the buoyline / platypus cliff area & doesn't require crossing open water.

The gate will be opened for ingress at the start of the session & unlocked at the end of the session. So if you go in there you will be locked in for the day. You can phone & ask for someone to open the gate & if someone is free they will come let you out.

Remember that essentially there are a few of us working for the weekend, resources are limited.....

Cheers,

Fitzy..
