Title

Cobbledicks Ford - recreational fishing

Description

Cobbledicks Ford is a very popular recreational fishing point. This photo shows a higher than normal water level after water has been released from Melton Reservoir to fill the Werrribee Weir.

Water remains at this level for about two hours after the release of water from the reservoir. The depth of the water is usually about two feet.

The damage to the original bluestone crossing built in 1852 can be seen with complete stones showing to the left, and bitumen to the right.
