Gone Fishing NSW Day

Learn to Fish ... In Time For Gone Fishing Day

Sunday, 10 October 2021

NSW Gone Fishing Day is fast approaching ... and we’re again helping you with the basics so you can enjoy fishing fun with family and friends!

While we usually have events around the state on the day, current COVID restrictions means we need to make some adjustments for this year’s Gone Fishing Day.

So instead of events on the ground, this year we’re running a special how-to video on our Facebook page to provide you with expert tips and tricks to catch more fish.

The video presentation will screen at 7pm on Friday, 8 October – giving you plenty of time to get prepared for Gone Fishing Day on Sunday, 10 October.

You can watch and re-watch this informative video as many times as you like. And we’ll re-run the clip on Gone Fishing Day so you can refresh yourself on rigs and bait presentations while you’re on the water!

The video features Rhys Creed from Social Fishing detailing how to catch native freshwater sportfish like golden perch in our inland rivers and impoundments while DPI’s Ian Osterloh will provide handy tips on how to catch popular estuary species including bream and flathead.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or an experienced angler, our professionally produced how-to video provides plenty of handy info to help you and your family catch more fish!

As well as practical info to improve your fishing, our special Gone Fishing Day video also provides you with the opportunity to win some great prizes, including fishing gear and lures. Keep an eye on the DPI Fisheries Facebook for more information!

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