Fish Habitat Works on the Mitta River

Featured image from North East CMA

In great news for recfishers, North East CMA will be undertaking habitat works along the Mitta River to restore fish habitat and increase the local fish population.

The Mitta River, adjacent to Katie Peters Reserve where the works will be undertaken, is a great spot for fly fishing and the new habitat will improve fishing opportunities in the area.

Funded by recreational fishing licence fees, North East CMA will be installing large rocks and timber structures in the river to create overhead cover and resting areas for fish.

To complete the works, Katie Peters Reserve at Eskdale will be closed to the public, including campers and fishers, for a week between Monday 19 April and Friday 23 April.

As part of the Victorian Government’s 2019-20 Recreational Fishing Large Grants Program, North East CMA received $39,381.20 for the Katie Peters Reserve River Restoration Project, Mitta River.
