The annual Twin Rivers Classic attracts as many as a thousand anglers to the rivers of East Gippsland.


2017 marks the 21st anniversary for the Twin Rivers Classic and for the first time it will include a lure category as well as a number of children's events.

Registrations will be taken at the Black Stump Johnsonville and the Nicholson Hotel between 10 AM - 8 PM and at Bairnsdale Bait Supply between 9 AM and 5 Pm on Friday 14th July or you can register online at www.twinrivers.com.au

It's another 6 AM start on Sunday with Catch and Release weigh-in at Johnsonville Jetty from 8 AM to 12 PM and Nicholson Jetty 8 AM to 11.30 AM. The last kept fish must be weighed-in at Johnsonville by 12.30 PM.

The lure (pardon the pun) of some great prizes will see anglers out on the rivers bright and early.


The major prize for the event is a JEEP Renegade SUV with winners announced and prizes presented at Johnsonville Jetty on Sunday. Other prizes include an aluminium boat and outboard motor, plus Gippsland Lakes accommodation and chartered cruises.

There'll be a dinner and live entertainment at the Nicholson Hotel on Saturday night with courtesy buses running between Nicholson, Johnsonville and Swan Reach.
