Morwell River (Little)
Located along Darlimurla Rd near Darlimurla (between Mirboo North & Boolarra) the Little Morwell River is a small stream flowing through farmland, then several kilometres of forest, and finally 5-6 km of farmland to where it joins the Morwell River near Boolarra. Width is 2-4 m with shallow (10-20 cm) riffles and pools to 60 cm. Predominantly sand bottom. Good habitat (snags, pools and riffles) for small brown trout in the forested area. Contains brown trout to 530 g, (av. 110 g) short-finned eel to 1 kg, river blackfish to 100 g (av. 25 g), shorthead lamprey and small Gippsland spiny crayfish. Not often fished. Last stocked with trout by Fisheries Victoria in 1958.
