The region's lakes are in relatively healthy shape ahead of the busy season, with most lake water levels on par with 2018 figures.
GWM Water's executive manager engagement, culture and assurance Andrew Rose said more remote communities throughout the Wimmera will continue to benefit from the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline, which brought steady water supply to parts of the region.
"Post Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline the situation is still really good from a recreational point of view but also from a general storage point of view," he said.
"We really do recognise the value and importance of recreational water to remoter communities, where it becomes a hub during the summer period for water activities.
"The mental health benefits and economic spin-offs are well researched."
