Platform a good catch

A NEW fishing platform on the Shoalhaven River will make casting a line easier for anglers.

A $25,000 funding grant from the Recreational Fishing Trust will enable the platform to be erected on an already popular recreational fishing spot located on land along the eastern end of Bolong Road owned by Shoalhaven City Council.

Shoalhaven Mayor Joanna Gash said the platform would provide local residents with increased fishing opportunities while also protecting the bank from further erosion.

It is anticipated that work will begin in the first quarter of 2014.
