Twizel Salmon Fishing Trip

Salmon Fishing

Once again in 2018 we will be organising a fishing trip up into the McKenzie Country during the Menzies Activity Days to fish for stupidly big fish on the Twizel canals. This is an amazing trip for both students and staff in a beautiful part of the country. The Twizel Canals are filled with big juicey salmon just waiting to be caught, cooked and yes, EATEN!

When, Where and What

We will be leaving on Sunday 3 December from Menzies College in vans and vehicles and will travel up to Twizel, we will stay for 3 nights at the Lake Ruataniwha camping ground whilst there and returning to school on Wednesday 6 December. We plan on doing ALOT of fishing but we will also visit the local salmon farm and power station. 

Planning And Preparation

In the build up we will need to organize our gear such as tents and rods, which can be borrowed from the school,  as well as the menu. We will also go over the plan for the week, health and safety, some basic fishing training and answer any questions you may have.
