Nhill Lake is looking fantastic at the moment. This photo was taken by I See You Photography on the weekend, the lake is looking amazing thanks to a lot of work by the Nhill Lake Committee and volunteers.
President of the Nhill Lake Committee Stuart Bone said, “The blueness of the Lake is ‘enviro dye’ to cut the UV rays getting to the weeds. It does not harm the water or the fish, yabbies or anything else in the lake. It’s purely a preventative measure for weeds and algae.
Don’t forget there are a number of fish at a catchable size that were stocked in the lake late last month.
Mr Bone said, “With the weather improving, the Lake has been a very popular place for locals and visitors to Nhill. It’s wonderful to see so many people walking, fishing and kayaking.
In the coming months, a new lakeside bore will be established as well, which will replace the existing infrastructure and secure a more reliable water supply for the lake.
The project has been made possible with funding from the Recreational Fishing Licence Grant Program, Victorian Fisheries Authority, Wimmera Catchment Management Authority and Hindmarsh Shire Council.
The Committee’s latest project has been improving the area at the fishing pontoon, and most recently 6 seats were sponsored to be installed in the coming weeks.
If anyone would still like to donate to the future upgrades and maintenance at Nhill Lake, please do so, Mr Bone said, “We are reliant on donations and we appreciate any amounts received.”

Here is hoping that come summer, Nhill and district will be able to enjoy lots of water activities at the Lake and have fun in the sun.
