Lake Rotomanu Family Trout Fishing Day

Allen from Highlands Park

Grab your fishing gear and bring your kids along to New Plymouth’s Lake Rotomanu to fish for 400 2-year-old rainbow trout that will be released into the lake. The event runs from 8am to 1pm on Saturday 31st October and Lake Rotomanu will be closed to powered watercraft during that time so that anglers can have exclusive use.

Participants can register on the day at the marquee tent set up near the boat ramp and volunteers from the Inglewood Rod, Gun & Recreation Club and staff from Taranaki Hunting & Fishing will assist with gear set-up, lures and bait etc, if required.
This is a free event funded by Taranaki Fish & Game

Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.

Poll: mayoral candidate Scott A Savage, will you vote for me in 2022?

Scott from Brooklands - Vogeltown

I am just a normal man living alone in a housing NZ flat, I am an invalid now after a motorcycle accident and other personal issues and I would like to be the next mayor of New Plymouth for the simple reason of wanting to make a difference and put an end to the corruption within our local Government such as the council, there is too much of our tax payers money being wasted on dead horses by the current council and it is time for a shake up!
