Fishery Rules

These rules are to ensure that everyone can enjoy their time at Cudmore.

Please read through the rules carefully before booking. 

Please check individual lakes for further rules and requirements.

Business Title

There is now a draw system in place for Tara, Avoca, Georges and Adelaide. You can arrive onsite at approx 2:30pm. You can walk a lake from 3pm. The draw will take place once everyone who is arriving for your lake has arrived. This could be as soon as 3:10pm. If you cant be onsite for 3.30pm then the draw will take place regardless and you will be able to choose from which ever pegs have not been chosen in the draw.
The draw is a water craft style. You pick your own peg. We do not tell you where to sit. We simply determine who has first pick of the available pegs buy drawing numbers from a bag once everyone has arrived. Groups who only intend to fish from 2 swims next to each other can share 1 ball. We try our hardest to keep social groups together. 
You do have the chance to move into a vacant peg once you are on a lake. You simply need to wait until the peg you want is free then call reception to let us know where you are moving to.
You need to be off your peg by 2.30pm on the day you leave so we can start the draw process again.
This new system has made the fishery a much more enjoyable and friendly place to be. No one gets priority over anyone else and its not first come first served. Its now fair for everyone.
