Better access for Goulburn river fishers

Better access for Goulburn river fishers
Anglers and members of the public can now enjoy improved access to the Goulburn River following the upgrading of access points at four key sites directly downstream of Eildon.

The one boat ramp and three angler access points had eroded over time and urgently required investment to bring them back to a good working condition.

This stretch of the Goulburn River is one of Victoria’s most popular trout fisheries and the access points will create new fishing opportunities.

The access point upgrades were funded through the Victorian Government’s bushfire recovery program which continues to invest funds to help attract recreational anglers and tourists back to bushfire affected areas.

These regions have suffered from drought and bushfires in recent years and rely heavily on income from visiting anglers.

North-eastern Victoria and in particular the Goulburn River provide excellent recreational fishing opportunities and makes a significant contribution to regional tourism, particularly in the Shire of Murrindindi.

The infrastructure investment will complement increased fish stocking in Lake Eildon, the Eildon Pondage and the Goulburn River in recent times.

Fisheries Victoria has invested over $230,000 as part of the bushfire recovery project over a number of areas, including stocking.

The repair and upgrade program was done in collaboration with the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority. Fisheries Victoria is pleased that local contractors were able to be engaged to undertake the works.

The upgraded access points are found between the Eildon Pondage and Thornton; Point Hill Reserve, Walnuts Reserve and two sites at the Eildon Pondage wall.
