Just to let everyone out there know, the Pupuke Challenge Fishing Competetion is comming up.

This is a friendly, no entry fee comp, and whilst there are some cool prizes it is really all about       A) getting more kids involved in fishing, and B) reminding people what a great fishing resource is available right in the heart of Auckland.

It is happening on Sunday 6th May. Weigh in at 3.30pm in Sylvan Park. The Comp is run by the North Shore Flyfishers Club and Trout Unlimited.

There are prizes for biggest Trout overall, Kids biggest Trout, and biggest Coarse fish.
 
So if you have a few hours spare why not drop down, alone or with the family, and have a bit of a fish. You never no, you just might win.
 
(For the full details have a look at the North Shore Clubs website and check it out in the April Newsletter.)

Bump lol.
Hi.
I recently inherited my late poppas spinning gear and 1 of his fly rods, so i have been thinking about getting my 5 year old into fishing freshwater so he can inherit them from me.
I am thinking about getting a 24hour license and trying Pupuke because its semi close and if i consider the amount i would spend on bait burley and gas 4 saltwater fishing its cheaper.
But,
Has anybody fished there recently? I read most of this thread before i noticed the dates.I was planning on getting some worms and bread 4 my boy and trying out the spinners myself.
Whats a good spinner to use? I have a few and i will just google image search whatever you recommend.
Thanks 4 any advice.

For flies you can't go past the green wooly bugger with a red head.
 
For spinners, I have always used a black and gold Toby 7 or 10 grams, I have heard that the small rapalas can be really good to, but I am not a big spin fisher.
 
Some of the other guys, like Dundee seem to spin a fair bit and will know a lot more.

Just tie a bit of bread about 1m under a float and cast out at the wharf in front of the hospital.  Feed the ducks with bits of bread floating around and the trout will come in and start feeding.  Good fun and easy to do.

Best places to fish at present, especially with the rain, would be the Pumphouse wharf or the Hospital Wharf. Other good places are Sylvan Park, where the fish are released each year, (if the Windsurfing school is not too busy), and the gap between the Quarry and the Lake beside the Kayak / Canoeing Club.
 
At this time of year, floating or sinking tip lines for me. And the Wooly Bugga works all year round, but if you are fishing off the Wharfs and there has been rain then try a Black and Peacock on a short dropper as a snail imitation.

Has anyone given the lake a try recently? 
Exams are finished and I'm very keen to try my luck and get my first fly fished trout. 

Cheers
Dan

Should fish well from now onwards & all methods work but probably bait ie bread dough or worm are the most productive. Unless you hve a non powered smal boat or kayak then access pretty well limited to 5 or six spots all of which have received mention.
 
Do not expect very exciting or stimulating fishing tho if you have been used to Hawkes Bay rivers & streams. 
I am finding as I get older my memory is deteriorating ... today I am unsure if I have found a rope or lost a horse !

With the water as warm as it is the best time to hit it at the moment would be dawn.

I fished at Sylvan Park this morning. Caught a 2lb Rainbow Trout on a black & gold Toby at about 7am. I lost one about the same size @ 630am. I met a guy called Robert, he caught a nice Perch probably about 2lb. We were both fishing off the rock spit in the middle of the carpark

The Rainbow Trout I caught this am measured 41.5 cm. I'm about to fillet it for dinner.
I'll use the frame & scraps for burley & bait when I go surfcasting @ Eastern or Bucklands Beach this evening.
Sorry about the poor quality picture, I had to use my crappy phone. My camera shots exceeded the 4.0mb limit
