NSW Gone Fishing Day is on again! And NSW DPI will be running a host of events to celebrate our love of fishing and encourage everyone to get out on the water. It doesn't matter if you haven't fished before or if you're the keenest of anglers, Gone Fishing Day is for everyone!
Free NSW DPI community fishing events for everyone will be hosted by DPI across NSW on Sunday 10 October, from 9:00am – 1:00pm.
There will be something for everyone, including beginners, who want to learn about fishing, as well as activities for the keen angler.
Fishing clubs are now invited to apply for grants to help run community fishing events and activities in their own local area on NSW Gone Fishing Day - on or around 10 October 2021.
