Catch a carp day and Opera house net drop off – Wentworth Wharf – NSW

August 13, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm AEST

Join OzFish at a family-friendly fishing event to remove carp from the waterway and help native fish thrive!

This is a free fishing event with prizes, raffles and a free lunch for those who register. Plus bring down any old and unwanted opera house yabby traps and swap it for an Oar-Gee Plow lure at the event to support sustainable fishing practices. Opera house nets are now illegal in NSW and those collected will be recycled into useful products for anglers, with the proceeds being used to support habitat restoration. Participants will be able to fish from 9:00am to 12:30pm. Fishing boundaries from Wentworth to Pomona in the Darling River and to Abbotsford bridge in the Murray River. Registrations are at Wentworth Wharf. 


Registration & Opera house net drop off: 9.00am to 12.00pm
Fishing times: 9:00am to 12:30pm
Lunch: 1:00pm to 1:30pm
Carp submissions between: 1:00pm to 1:30pm
Prizes drawn from: 1:30pm to 1:45pm

Each carp submitted to committee members from 1pm to 1:30pm receives an additional ticket into the random draw. All competitors must hold a current fishing license and all fish caught must comply with current Fisheries regulations. Registration is essential. We hope to see you there!
