Fishing in the Glenelg. (To the editor of the "Spectator") Sir,-I wish to call the attention of the fishing sportsmen, in the Western district of Victoria especially, to the following facts: Some six years ago the fishing in the Glenolg river was a thing to boast about. It was the hest river in Australia for fishing-breniji, perch and mulloway were culght in quantities; Now its glory has I departed owing to the runniing of the fresh water creek into the son, diverting it front its old course in to the river. Since then the fish ing has declined. fixpert evid once points to the fact that the sea bream come into the rivers to the fresh water to clear themnsolves of the seaon scale, etc. Now the creek runs into the sea, hence no good bream fishing. Some six months ago, a number of South-Eastern fishing sportsmen interviewed the Premier of South Australia, who was good enough to send Mr Burchell, Government drainage engineer, to visit the Glenelg river, and see if it was possiblle to di...
