Fishing Resources

So you've caught a tagged trout?

Please click through to the Fish & Game Region where you caught the trout by clicking on the New Zealand tab on the right.

Once there follow the links to send us the details of your catch.

Please include information on size, where and when you caught it as this important data to help us manage the fishery.

You would like to run a fishing competition?

If you're thinking about running a fishing competition, you need to apply to your local Fish & Game office.

There are a few simple rules you'll need to comply with (see information sheet below) but be aware that each Fish & Game Region also has its own specific conditions as well which they will outline when you make your application.

There may also be a fee charged for the competition permit.

If you have any questions about either of these topics, please contact your local Fish & Game office.
