How things have changed. (16 April 2016)

As a boy we visited friends who worked a dairy farm just north of the highway near Nar Nar Goon.
Back in the late 50's
Arrarat Creek flowed 1.6 m wide and .6 m deep. Crystal clean with trout , blackfish and galaxia.
Without fail we would catch all species.
Trout to 1 lb and I recall one blackfish of 17.5 inches.
It is sad to see the creek now. How things have changed.
