Fishing program returns

- NATHANIEL CHAMBERS

HOOKED on Palmerston is back for a second season, giving Territoria­ns a chance to embrace the fishing lifestyle around the local lakes.

The easily accessible and well-stocked lakes provide the perfect opportunit­y for all recreation­al fishers to participat­e for the chance to win a share of almost $100,000 in vouchers. The competitio­n is open to all ages and will run from October 1, until January 31 next year.

Palmerston Mayor Athina Pascoe-Bell looks forward to the next season of the community program. “We saw a great amount of community participat­ion last time,” Ms Pascoe-Bell said.

“I encourage you all to register again, grab your rods and head down to one of our wellstocke­d, local lakes.

“Not only does this competitio­n provide an opportunit­y for family outdoor activity, but it assists in improving awareness of Palmerston lakes.”

Once registered participan­ts can fish at Sanctuary Lakes, Durack Lakes or Marlow Lagoon.
