Information

Penstock Lagoon was originally constructed in 1916, as water storage and intake for the now decommissioned Waddamana power station. Throughout its history, Penstock has been a fly fishing water of high repute. The lagoon is no longer used for electricity generation but its water quality and quantity is managed by HydroTasmania and the Inland Fisheries Service to ensure the future of the fishery. Penstock Lagoon offers a variety of habitats, from weedy marshes to forested rocky shores.
