40 native fish, including Murray cod up to 80cm & yellas, have been salvaged from a drained irrigation channel.

Several Fisheries Officers assisted Goulburn-Murray Water with the salvage, alongside Boort Angling Club.

The fish were all released into the Loddon River.


We’re giving you the chance to have your say on plans to upgrade the Cowes boat ramp.

We’ll be at Cowes Yacht Club on July 14 from 4.30 - 6.30pm.

If you can’t get along to the session you’ll be able to view the plans and provide feedback online.
