Angling for top spot at Lake Tinaroo
ANGLERS beware. Your jealously guarded secret fishing spot on Lake Tinaroo may soon be common knowledge.
Tablelands Regional Council's specialist mapping unit, Atherton Tablelands Geographic Information Services, has produced a new map detailing some of the lake's fishing hotspots.
But ATGIS co-ordinator, Alistair Hart, said local fishermen need not be too concerned about losing their favoured position.
"There are still lots of local spots that have not been mapped, so there are still some secret areas," he said.
"But having said that, there are lots of fishing hot spots identified on the map, more than enough to keep visitors occupied."
TRC Mayor Rosa Lee Long described Lake Tinaroo as the "jewel in the crown of this beautiful part of Queensland".
"Lake Tinaroo is outstanding and we are happy to share it with anyone who wants to come and spend time with us," she said.
The map will also identifyhazards in the lake.
Mr Hart said the map came about through discussions with the police about ways to identify hazards and make the lake safer.
The $9.95 map will be launched on January 21.
