Boat Fishing 'how to', Lake Tarawera, Saturday 2nd January 2021

Fish & Game provide ‘how-to’ boat fishing knowledge

Fish & Game are providing a free talk and demonstration on improving angler’s boat fishing skills and knowledge this summer.

The event is again set for Stoney Point reserve, off Spencer Rd, Lake Tarawera on Saturday 2nd of January 2021. The talk begins at 10.00am and runs for about 2 hours. There is no booking and you don’t need to bring anything, but a fold-out chair and suitable clothing, rain or shine, might be handy. 

Fish & Game Officers Mark Sherburn and Matt Osborne talk and demonstrate worthwhile information on the trout’s life-cycle, their food, habits and habitat and tips and techniques to be more successful when fishing for trout from boats. Afterward, a demonstration will be given on how to clean and completely de-bone a trout before hot smoking it.

The talk is simple, easy-to-understand stuff designed to enhance angler’s enjoyment on the lakes and ultimately make them more successful says Mr Sherburn. “We want licence holders to be successful and enjoy the wonderful Rotorua lakes fishery. We are blessed with an abundance of opportunity here but trout fishing can be tricky to master”
