Marron season opens Friday

​Thousands of people are expected to go recreational marron fishing this weekend, with the four-week season opening this Friday at noon.

About 14,000 people have applied for licences to fish for marron at the Collie, Murray, Deep, Gardner, Warren, Donnelly, Blackwood, Capel and Preston rivers; and Moore and Hutt rivers and their tributaries.
Marron fishing with snare nets is also permitted at Margaret River; Big Brook, Drakesbrook, Glen Mervyn, Logue Brook, Waroona and Wellington dams; and Harvey River and dam.

Fisheries and marine officers will be on patrol before and during the season to ensure people catching marron are sticking to the rules - especially in regard to using the correct fishing gear.
