Not only will West Australian face whopping increases in water and power charges come July 1, they will also be slugged extra for fishing licence. As part of the State Government’s review of fees and charges, it says recreational fishing licence fees will go up by $5 from July 8.
The review noted that licence fees had not risen since 2010. Licences are needed to fish for rock lobster, abalone and marron, when fishing with a net or from a boat, and also for fresh water angling in the South West. The new fee for each of those licences will be $45. Fishing from a boat licence will cost $35. Fresh water angling licences are not required for under 16s.
