THE Murray Crayfish season is now open in designated areas, with crays permitted to be taken during the months of June, July and August.

In the Murray River, fishing is permitted between the Hume Weir and the Tocumwal Road Bridge, including Lake Mulwala, and in the Murrumbidgee River between the Gundagai Road Bridge and Berembed Weir, excluding Old Man Creek.

An article in the Riverine Herald recently said fishermen were expected to flock to Torrumbarry.

Torrumbarry locals and visitors will have to travel to the designated areas in order to legally catch Murray Crayfish, not Torrumbarry.

We apologise for the confusion.
