Please find attached the flyer and fishing regulations for the competition.

Please note the USE OF BOATS on the flyer (see 9.1) Anglers MUST abide the ruling on not exceeding 5 knots within 200 metres of the shoreline. 

The actual ruling which stands at present is that:

Anglers trolling from boats must stay at least 50m from any anglers fishing from the shore. Power boats are allowed on Lake Waikare but cannot exceed 5 knots on any part of the lake.

Power boating on Lake Taharoa is allowed and all vessels can only exceed 5 knots 200 metres from the shoreline. 

We look forward to seeing you and your family and friends at this year’s competition.
