Gone Fishing Day – Manning Point – NSW

October 8, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm AEDT

This year’s Gone Fishing Day we want to inspire the next generation of young leaders in our fishing community by sharing sustainable fishing practices and the importance of habitat for our favourite fish species.

October is also World Mental Health Month, so we want to shine a light on the role that fishing and being in nature plays on our wellbeing. It doesn’t matter if you are new to fishing or never fished before – this is a safe an inclusive event for all to join!  

Come along and learn about OzFish Unlimited, the work we do, and tips and tricks on being a sustainable fisher. Bring along your rod/kayak for a few hours of fishing in the river afterwards. Don’t worry if you don’t have a rod, we will have plenty of rods, tackle, bait and ice for you to use.

*If bringing a kayak or canoe, please remember it is compulsory to wear a lifejacket.

This event is also a Yabby Trap Drop Spot.
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.

Registration is essential. We hope to see you there.
