Improved fishing and ramp facilities in VIC

WORK has been completed on two fishing platforms on Victoria’s Anglesea River funded through the State Government’s Recreational Fishing Initiative.

The two fishing platforms which provide comfortable all abilities access to the water’s edge used local labour and materials and are part of the wider $675,000 Surf Coast Shire Anglesea Riverbank master plan.

The Anglesea River is a dynamic estuary system that changes constantly and is influenced by a range of environmental factors. When conditions are favourable the estuary provides excellent fishing for locals and tourists alike with species such as black bream, mullet and Australian salmon commonly caught from the banks.

In related news, upgraded boat launching facilities at Schulzes Beach have improved fishing opportunities at Lake Hindmarsh, Victoria’s largest freshwater lake.

The facilities had been in urgent need of repair after years of drought. The single lane boat ramp and car park at Schulzes Beach, on the western side of the lake, have both been resurfaced, making it easier for anglers to launch boats of all sizes.

The road to Schulzes Beach has also been upgraded, allowing year round access to the boat ramp in all weather. Lake Hindmarsh, near Jeparit, is 22km long and popular with anglers chasing yabbies, redfin, golden perch and freshwater catfish.

The resurfacing was undertaken with funding from Parks Victoria, Hindmarsh City Council and the Victorian Government’s Recreational Fishing Initiative.
