ANGLERS URGED TO JOIN ‘GO FISHING DAY’ FUN AT EBOR ON SUNDAY

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall is encouraging members of the public to head out to Ebor and brush up on their angling skills, as part of the inaugural NSW Go Fishing Day this Sunday, 6 December.

 

Mr Marshall said the Dutton Trout Hatchery at Ebor would be open for tours and other activities aimed at promoting good angling practices.

 

“We have some of the best waterways in the Northern Tablelands and can all take advantage of that to get out and throw a line in, enjoying the outdoors and the benefits of fishing,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“The day has been specially designated to encourage locals to hone their fishing skills, as well as looking after the aquatic environment.

 

“Go Fishing Day delivers on a NSW Government election commitment to designate a special day for fishing, a fun and active pastime that anyone from any age can enjoy.”

 

Activities on Sunday include free ‘try fishing’ sessions for beginner adults and children 5 years old and over, goodie bags with lots of ‘fishy’ giveaways, casting competitions and expert advice from DPI fisheries staff.

 

For anyone travelling outside the region, there will also be free local seafood tastings at Coffs Harbour, Kurnell and Nowra and educational fish hatchery tours at Jindabyne and Narrandera.

 

Mr Marshall said that if anglers couldn’t make it out to Ebor on Sunday, they could still join in and go in the draw to win one of 50 high quality rod and reel fishing combos.

 

“To participate, just take a photo of you fishing or collecting litter from your local fishing spot in NSW on 6 December and email it to gofishing.nsw@dpi.nsw.gov.au,” Mr Marshall said.
