Photo: BEN WATSON Go to www.central leader.co.nz to see a video of last year's competition and advice on fishing locations. Excellent water quality and great fishing -- and it s right in the middle of busy Takapuna at Lake Pupuke. There can t be many such lakes in the devel- oped world, yet Pupuke -- fringed by multi-million- dollar homes -- is rela- tively underfished. North Shore Fly Fishers in association with Trout Unlimited NZ holds a fishing contest there each autumn. The main aim is to get more people fishing the lake for trout. A secondary objective is to obtain data about fish numbers, size and con- dition. This year s compe- tition is on May 1 from 7am to 3.30pm. There s a healthy population of trout already in the lake, supplemented by perch and other species. And fish numbers should be boosted some time before the compe- tition by an injection of around 1000 trout from the Ngongotaha hatch- ery in Rotorua. Rainbow trout of up to 5kg are rumoured to have been caught in Lake Pupuke, which is best fished in the cooler months. Anyone intending to fish in the competition will need a freshwater licence, available from Hunts Sports Store in Crown Hill. Licences are free for anyone 12 or younger, while day licences cost $21 for adults or $4 for 12 to 17-year-olds. Hunts have also donated $500 of vouchers as prizes for the heaviest fish caught on the day, plus spot prizes for juniors. Any legal fishing method is allowed at a variety of shore locations and non-motorised boats are permitted. Life jackets should be worn. Call Phil Gates on 480-2334 or Dennis Smith on 376-3375 (evenings) for more infor- mation.
