An updated guide for Edward River boat users has been released in time for Christmas.

The map, which charts 36km of the Edward River between local landmarks Stevens Weir to Lawson Syphon, was commissioned by Deniliquin Boat Owners Association trustees Norm Barnett and John Macknight.

Mr Macknight said the association wanted to use the balance of its funds for the chart before it disbanded.

The Deniliquin Boat Users Guide is available for $5, and 500 copies have been donated to the Deniliquin RSL Fishing Club for fundraising.

‘‘I think people should absolutely pick up a copy ... they’re very helpful,’’ RSL Fishing Club president Andrew Hall said.

‘‘It provides great points of interest along the Edward River. It shows where the snags are, the great fishing spots and highlights the boating hazards.’’

The guide also features information on fish species, as well as most of the Deniliquin town map and points of interest along the Edward River.

Mr Macknight said the last Deniliquin Boat Users Guide was printed in 1993, and that the latest edition was a ‘‘must have’’ for locals and visitors.

Guides are available at Mobil North Service Station, Deni Firearms, Betta Electrical, McLean Beach Caravan Park, Pioneer Caravan Park, Riverina Cellars, Edward River Hotel, Paringa Caravan Park and Deniliquin Riverside Caravan Park.

The guide was designed and printed by Deniliquin Newspapers Pty Ltd.
