Campaspe Loddon Chapter

Earlier in 2021, a few members of local angling clubs in the region decided to join forces to form a local OzFish chapter to improve the health of our waterways and give the fish a helping hand. The Chapter wants to work alongside local groups to improve both the environment and fishing in the region. A foundation project for the Chapter is to enhance fish habitat at Lake Eppalock through mapping of existing habitat to help identify key locations for re-snagging efforts. Future projects also include an in-water habitat rehabilitation project for Barkers Creek Reservoir currently being developed with Bendigo & District Fly Fishers Inc. and water management authorities in the region. The Chapter also hopes to organise riparian vegetation planting and cleanups at popular fishing locations between Kyneton and Bendigo.
