Anglers had an awesome day last Sunday at the Jeparit Angular Club Christmas competition. Organisers were pleased with the good turn out with plenty of fish caught.

Jeparit Angling Club President Rick Day said, “with the excellent river flows this year, the fishing is fantastic here and we had a good crowd to come out on Sunday, to take part in the competition.”

“We had the fisheries electrofishing boat here to put on a demonstration after weigh-in above the weir,” he said.
