The Angler Riparian Partnerships Program allows recreational fishers to partner directly with their local Catchment Management Authority, landholders and local communities and deliver works to improve riparian land along waterways that are important to them – for fish in their favourite fishing streams. The program operates across Victoria for 4 years (from 2016/17 to 2019/20).
The Corangamite CMA has partnered with local angling groups to restore stretches of the Barwon and Curdies Rivers. Works include fencing and revegetation with the aim to increase water quality for threatened fish such Yarra pygmy perch and Australian grayling.
This project is funded by the Victorian Government.
