It has become a stunning blue sky day with a cool gusty breeze for our ANZAC Day here in Turangi. I’m sure like most we are all eager to move from Level 4 to Level 3 on Tuesday 28th April. It will allow us once again to be able to enjoy some fishing in the Taupo area. There are still some restrictions in place and these have been outlined in the latest DOC update released yesterday.
Taupō Fishery Update – The DOC Taupō Fishery Management Team in conjunction with the Tuwharetoa Maori Trust Board are pleased to confirm shore-based trout fishing in the Taupō District will resume for local anglers on Tuesday 28th of April, when we drop from COVID-19 Alert Level 4 to Level 3. Fishing from a boat will remain out of bounds under Alert Level 3 – as it was under Level 4.
Safety remains the key concern, both for individuals and communities. Only experienced trout anglers who know how to minimise risks should consider going fishing. In addition, anglers are reminded to maintain social distancing and only fish in closer proximity with people who share your ‘bubble’.
Travel remains restricted under Alert Level 3 so anglers outside the Taupō District should not journey here to fish.
Once again, we would like to thank the huge majority of Taupō anglers for your support with the Level 4 restrictions – helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and save lives.
For the most current information please refer to either the DOC website or Face book page.
As of Tuesday 28/04/2020 we will be open to do online, email and phone orders while we remain in Level 3. The Sportinglife Team will do our best to fill and courier orders with the resources available to us. Be safe….be responsible.
