Go fishing at Malpas

18th Jan 2022

Guyra Anglers Club Inc will hold a free Gone Fishing Day is on Sunday January 30th. The day is all about celebrating all that they love about fishing and what it gives to the local Guyra community.
Along with support from OzFish Unlimited Northern Tablelands Chapter, CWP Renewables & Sapphire Wind Farm, and BCF Armidale, Guyra Anglers Club aims to have an action packed day at Malpas Dam targeting Bass, Trout and Redfin.
All Redfin (a feral fish) caught on the day must be humanely dispatched and will be utilised positively in being returned to nature as fertilizer for local farmers – a beneficial outcome for both the water and land environments.
The day commences at 8:30am and runs until 4pm. Kids can take part in a junior fishing clinic at 10am delivered by qualified and passionate fishers, learn hints and tips and all about responsible fishing. There will be prizes on the day - including biggest Bass, Trout and Redfin, along with a prize for the most Redfin per person.
A tasty BBQ lunch & drinks (free for the kids, gold coin donation for adults) will be available. Want to share in the fun, go to https://ozfish.org.au/event/gone-fishingday-malpas-dam/ to register (preferred) however walk ups on the day at Malpas Dam are welcome. COVID measures will be adhered to for a safe and fantastic fishing day.
Guyra Anglers Club would like also to take this chance to give their heartfelt thanks to Khammo, Dasha’s Hardware, Campbells Butchery and the Guyra Hotel, for their continuing support of our proactive local club through our regular raffles and AGM prizes.
