Gone Fishing NSW Day

Gone Fishing Day is on Again

Sunday, 9 October 2022

Mark Sunday 9 October 2022 in your calendar as Gone Fishing Day is on again in NSW!

It doesn't matter if you haven't fished before or if you're the keenest of anglers, Gone Fishing Day is for everyone! We will be running six major NSW DPI events, showcasing all things fishing and helping you with the basics so you can enjoy fishing fun with family and friends well into the future!

  • Ballina
  • Lake Macquarie
  • Batemans Bay
  • Sydney
  • Narrabri
  • Cowra

Once again, clubs and organisations will be encouraged to host their own event with options to apply for grant funding of up to $2,000 or for a Gone Fishing Day package which includes 30 rod and reel sets to assist with your event and giveaways/prizes and advisory information.

Application forms and grant funding guidelines will be available soon.

Activities on Gone Fishing Day in NSW are supported by the Recreational Fishing Trusts and NSW DPI.
