Ovens River Habitat Improvements

It’s a picturesque fishing spot with significant habitat improvement!

Thanks to your fishing licence fees, the Alpine Fly Fishers Club received an Intermediate Grant of $38,402 to complete works along the Ovens River to enhance the area for recreational fishing.

With help from the North East CMA, they’ve installed large boulders, fish resting areas, constructed log jams, and re-established riparian vegetation.

All of these upgrades create greater variability in river flows, more habitat areas, bank stabilisation, shade, cover, and insect activity! It’s a win-win for fishers and fish.
