Eastern - Boating How to

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

This year the event is set to take place at Fish & Game’s office and hatchery property at 1130 Paradise Valley Rd, Ngongotaha on Saturday 7th of January 2023. The talk begins at 10.00am and runs for about 2 hours. There is no need to book and you don’t need to bring anything, but a fold-out chair and suitable clothing, rain or shine, might be handy. Spot prizes sponsored by Kilwell will be given away on the day!

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. Covered are the many varied techniques used for trout fishing including a look at the specific tackle needed for success. Afterward, a demonstration will be given on how to clean and completely de-bone a trout before hot smoking it.

The talk is promoted as simple, easy-to-understand stuff designed to enhance anglers’ 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 sometimes”
