The popular Cohuna Kids Carp Catch returns next month with prizes for the largest carp, the most carp, the smallest carp and the most interesting fish.
North Central Catchment Management Authority acting project manager Amy Russell said the carp catch was a great event for children to become involved with in local waterways and have fun at the same time.
‘‘During the day we will talk about responsible fishing, our native fish recovery plan, highlight the different types of fish that inhabit the creek and the importance of connectivity between the creek and the forest,’’ Ms Russell said.
She said children needed to bring their own rod and fishing gear, but bait would be supplied.
Children must be accompanied by a guardian.
Registration is open from 9.30am on Sunday, November 5, at the North Central CMA marquee in Garden Park.
Gunbower forest bus tours will also run at 9.30am and noon. Places for the bus tour are limited and bookings can be made until Wednesday on 54487124 or firstname.lastname@example.org Carp Catch registrations can also be made on the same number and email.
