Ovens and Little Snowy habitat restoration


Anglers can look forward to healthier fisheries in the Ovens River and Little Snowy Creek once in-stream fish habitat restoration and bankside revegetation works are complete.

The improvements will be funded by the State Government’s Target One Million plan for recreational fishing, which aims to get more Victorians fishing more often.

The North East Catchment Management Authority, with support from the Greenwells Fly Fishing Club, identified the need for action given both waters have been impacted by historic gold dredging, channel straightening and de-snagging.

Boulder fields and snags will be installed to create variable flows, scouring for deep refuge pools and sections of broken rapids for aeration.

Other bankside restoration works, such as revegetation, will involve consultation with local angling groups and complement in-stream habitat works and angler access points.
