Children's fish-out days, Ngongotaha trout hatchery, Rotorua

Children aged from 6 to 14 years-old will be able to catch a rainbow trout at the hatchery’s specially designed fish-out pond.

For many children, this will be their first trout fishing experience and with expert tuition from members of the Rotorua Anglers Association, they’re guaranteed to catch a trout that can be taken home for dinner!

A sausage sizzle and drinks are available. Fish filleting for a gold coin donation is also available.

Catch a tagged trout from the pond win a spin rod and reel combo kindly supplied by sponsor Kilwell.
