The Fishing Friendly Kai Iwi Lakes Trout Fishing Contest will again be held near Dargaville, Kauri Coast, Northland over 7th & 8th July 2018.
This contest is undoubtedly the highlight of the 2018 Northland Trout Fishing calendar.
Anglers who have not experienced angling Kai Iwi style should make this the year to sample Northland trout and experience the Kauri Coast hospitality.
Tales of fishing this contest are talked about throughout the angling fraternity and feedback from anglers who fish this event annually is that they enjoy it because it is family and fun focused.
The event is to encourage new anglers into the sport of freshwater angling and to encourage this Fish and Game allows free entry for children and junior anglers into the competition.
Lakes Taharoa and Lake Waikare are stocked annually with 1 year old rainbow trout fingerlings, which can live in the lakes for up to 2-3 years. The trout grow very well with the varied diet the lakes and their environs provide resulting in a wonderful eating fish.
