2019 Lower Waikato River Trout Contest

The full contest this year is the 10th since we started in 2009, and we’re looking forward to it!

A fantastic array of over $5,500 prizes are sorted, and Bob Gamble from Taupiri Tavern has offered a $500 draw prize for adult’s entry competitors. As long as you’re entered you’re in, but you must be at the prize-giving to collect or it will be re-drawn!

So it’s Saturday 5th October to Saturday 12th, plenty of time to catch some large trout frequenting the Waikato river at the moment!

Remember Sweetmans Reel Fishin’ in Huntly closes at the end of this month, so if you want any tackle (especially salt water) get in quick, bargains to be had.
