Ewen Maddock Dam is a popular place for fishing. You can fish from your paddle craft or from the platform on the boardwalk at Maddock Park.
Remember the lake is home to an abundance of wildlife. It’s very important to ensure that all rubbish, especially fishing line and hooks, are disposed of properly to avoid serious harm to wildlife.
A fishing permit is required at Ewen Maddock Dam. The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries controls the fishing rules and regulations in Queensland and administers the Stocked Impoundment Permit Scheme (SIPS). Please visit daf.qld.gov.au to purchase a SIPS permit or for a list of outlets that sell permits. These permits must be purchased before fishing on the lake.
