Anglesea River fishers get improved facilities

DPI Victoria

Work has now been finished on two fishing platforms on the 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.

Fisheries Victoria, Corangamite CMA, DSE and Surf Coast Shire are continuing to work together to better understand the estuary and how it works.
