Film: catch a carp

Mar 11, 2020

As part of Wimmera CMA's focus on removing noxious carp from waterways across the Wimmera catchment, we support local fishing competitions with prizes for carp sections.

It's a win-win situation! Anglers win prizes (and have a lot of fun in the process) and the rivers win because the more carp removed, the healthier the waterways are for our native fish.

At the 2020 Horsham Fishing Competition on March 8, we were pleased that once again the number of native fish caught was more than the carp (a trend that has continued for the past several years). We're also happy to see the amount of carp the competition has taken out of the Wimmera River system, great effort by all! The carp were all collected to make into delicious fish dishes.

We have made a short film with carp catching champion Chris Denton, who made it five years in a row at Horsham with the heaviest bag (23 carp weighing 43.87kg in total). If you want some tips for the next fishing competition you enter, you can watch the video HERE.
