Fishing

The Kerang Cohuna Koondrook  is blessed with an abundance of water sources; rivers, lakes and creeks and offer a range of recreational fishing opportunities.

Murray Cod and Yellow Belly are the most common fish caught in the Murray River and local waterways.

Before fishing, anglers need to ensure they have the required licence to fish and be aware of all rules and regulations.

Murray Cod and Yellow Belly can be caught in the Murray River, Gunbower Creek and Loddon River along with Redfin, Carp and Bony Bream.  Anglers may also catch fish in the many channels and lakes throughout the region.

Fishing rods can be hired from the Gateway to Gannawarra Visitor Centre, along with handy information on where to fish.

Suitable baits include worms, yabbies, cheese, bardi grubs, shrimp and lures.

Our Shire supports “catch and release” of native fish.

There are many boat ramps throughout the region and allow easy access to the Murray River, Gunbower Creek and a number of lakes.
