Lake Ainsworth off-limits to traps
FISHERS are being reminded of the fishing restrictions in Lake Ainsworth, Lennox Head.
NSW Department of Primary Industries Fisheries officers have in recent weeks seized illegal traps in the lake.
"Trapping - including crab, fish and yabby trapping - is banned in Lake Ainsworth," said supervising Fisheries officer Far North Coast Ian Stockton.
The trappers were targeting a yabby known as redclaw, which can be taken with a rod and line or hand-hauled yabby net.
