Carp are an invasive species due to their destructive bottom-eating habits, which places our native species at risk. A carp muster is a great way to remove them from the river, helping to improve the health of our waterways.
You can fish anywhere or at the Riverwalk in Coolah (Booyamurra St, Coolah). This is a catch and release event – all native fish must be released. Bring your carp in to the Riverwalk by 2pm for weighing. Prizes awarded for the biggest carp and most number of carp. Categories for primary age kids, high school age youths, and adults.

The event is run by OzFish and Dunedoo-Coolah Landcare as part of a Landcare NSW – OzFish partnership. The carp muster and tree planting is funded by the NAB Foundation, with support from BCF – Boating Camping Fishing and NSW DPI Fisheries.
