Family fun at at Frombergs Dam, Ulverstone 2017

This Sunday is Gone Fishing Day. This is a great opportunity to grab a friend and try trout fishing.

The Inland Fisheries Service is working with Anglers Alliance Tasmania and Sea Fisheries on Gone Fishing Day to bring you a day of all things fishing.

You will not need an angling licence to fish in inland waters (all other angling regulations apply). Get a copy of the Tasmanian Inland Fishing Code for a summary of rules and regulations.

Gone Fishing Day is all about getting outdoors. Drop a line, enjoy time with family and friends on or by the water, and (hopefully) catch a fish or two.

Getting outdoors is great for your physical and mental health. All fishers can agree that there is no such thing as a bad days fishing when those close to you and the glorious places fishing takes you surround you. So why not have a day that recognises and promotes all of these things!

There will be a number of junior angling event happening on Gone Fishing Day. Angling clubs all over the state will be giving kids a great chance to catch a fish in inland waters and Sea Fisheries will be coordinating events around the coast.

We will see you out for Gone Fishing Day, this Sunday 20 October 2019.
