So who had a clue...

About this marvelous idea before the consultation period closed on the 6th? Effectively makes the whole river a transit zone meaning no boat or kayak based fishing. Convienently enough, elite private school rowing programs are virtually unaffected....

It’s why they are running a target 1 mil campaign pretending they care about fishing take license fees then block the Yarra.

is the fishing really that good upstream from docklands and the city? Seems pretty ridiculous that they're doing this anyway...

I think it's done by Park Vic, not by the fisheries.
On the VR fish page, they said they'd talk to fisheries and to Jaala Pulford the minister.
