New Taupō trout season, new fishing licence – July 1 marks the start of a new trout fishing season and heralds the imminent arrival of large numbers of rainbows, as they run the rivers. The new season also means new licences, so everyone fishing in the area will need a 2018/19 Taupō fishing licence.
Annual fishing licences can be purchased from 25 June and are valid from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019. Costs remain unchanged.
It’s easy to buy a new licence, simply visit the dedicated webpage or pop in and see a local licence agent. Various licence options are available to match different circumstances. Most people will opt for an Annual Adult Licence but anglers who intend to go fishing with a partner or children might find a Family Licence proves more cost effective.
By purchasing a fishing licence anglers are making a positive contribution to the maintenance of their fishery. From practical maintenance work, such as cutting access tracks, to world leading fishery science.
