2010 Echuca-Moama RSL Fishing Classic
  |  First Published: April 2010

The Echuca-Moama RSL Fishing Classic was once again a roaring success with 622 competitors catching 336 fish over the family fun weekend.

Held over three days, from Friday 12 March to Sunday 14 March, the Fishing Classic was blessed with perfect weather for the entire weekend. Fishing over 22km of the Murray River gave the large entrant field plenty of opportunities to test their skills on the native fish population.

All profits from the weekend go back into restocking native fish, with 14,545 yellowbelly released (unfortunately no cod fingerlings were available).

This much-anticipated event wasn’t to disappoint with nearly all anglers taking home a prize, thanks to the generous sponsors. Major prizes were awarded by a lucky draw with entrants having to catch a legal-sized native fish, regardless of size, to be eligible to win. So whether you caught a 60cm cod or a 1m+ specimen, you were in with the same chance!

The Echuca-Moama RSL is very grateful for the ongoing support and sponsorship from Stargames, BRP Evinrude and their other sponsors, without such support the event would not be as successful as it is, and would not be able to giveaway nearly $5000 per day of prizes as well as three boat packages.

This really is a great family-orientated fishing weekend that gives the kids an equal chance at a prize as the adults. The event will again be held next year in March (dates to be confirmed) and with so many raffle and prizes don’t miss your chance to be a part of it.
