Ramps open with golden tag fishing comp relaunch

There’s an alluring extra reason to pack a fishing rod or two and head off for a day’s fishing at Barkers Creek Reservoir right now.
This week’s re-launch of the Golden Tag fishing competition means there are now several thousand dollars worth of tagged fish swimming around just waiting to be caught at Barkers Creek Res – and also at Kyneton’s Upper Coliban Reservoir.
Coinciding with this week’s start of the new cod season, new boat ramps at both reservoirs were also officially declared open on Tuesday with state Minister for Fishing and Boating Melissa Horne and MP for Bendigo West Maree Edwards on site for the occasion.
