The Lake Boga Land and On-Water Management Plan is available online.

Goulburn-Murray Water says Lake Boga is in good shape for summer holiday-makers.

At close to 98 per cent full after strong inflows for the past three months, the water storage is an ever-popular destination for fishing, boating and lakeside family picnics.

The lake, managed by G-MW, is known as the gateway to Swan Hill, being 11km south of the regional centre.

G-MW customer operations general manager Scott Barber said when full, Lake Boga had a capacity of 38000Ml.

‘‘It’s great to have a healthy water supply in Lake Boga for our irrigators, communities and recreational users,’’ he said.

‘‘Water from this storage is released into the Murray River via outfall channels, which supply orchards, vineyards and grain crops downstream.

‘‘It’s important to remember the lakes, dams and reservoirs managed by G-MW have a prime operational role of storing water for delivery to entitlement holders.

‘‘In saying this, many also have a Land and On-Water Management Plan, including Lake Boga, which helps everyone to make the most of the area’s boating, picnic facilities, wildlife and more.’’
