Free event to help improve Rotorua lake anglers' skills


Fish & Game is providing a free talk and demonstration on improving anglers' boat fishing skills and knowledge.

The event is set for Stoney Point reserve, off Spencer Rd, Lake Tarawera this Sunday . The talk begins at 10am and runs for about two 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 will 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 was simple, easy-to-understand stuff designed to enhance anglers' enjoyment on the lakes and ultimately make them more successful, said 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."
