CHANGE OF DATE FOR FAMILY FISH DAY JANUARY 2020
January 5 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Family Fish Day was scheduled for Saturday 4th January 2020, however the wet & windy weather forecast has forced us to host the event on SUNDAY 5TH JANUARY 2020 !!!
Mum’s and Dad’s waking up in Streaky Bay eagerly anticipate. Streaky Bay Tourist Promotions stages the popular event on the iconic Streaky Bay jetty and the best part is its FREE ! There are cash prizes for the keen anglers that land the biggest of each species.
Anglers are encouraged to register from 8:00am onward before getting down to the business of catching the big one. Participants can cast off from 9:00am and continue until the close of competition at 11:00am. Streaky Bay Tourism encourages a catch and release policy for the event.
A sausage sizzle and refreshments will be available from 10:00am, along with a great raffle so bring along a $2 coin. All proceeds go to Streaky Bay Tourism. Killas, Streaky Bay will sell bait onsite for a bargain rate so that anglers do not have to leave the competition site.
Extreme weather may postpone Family Fish Day with 24 hours’ notice for:
1. A catastrophic fire danger rating (which is confirmed the day before the applicable day) is issued or;
2. The forecast day prior is for 38 degrees or above (on the ABC radio or television) and/or;
3. There are severe or extreme weather conditions predicted for the day of the event or that interrupt the event.
A postponement communication plan will be implemented for the public to all stakeholders via this website.
If the event is cancelled before or on 4th January, then it is likely that the event will be rescheduled for SuNDAY 5th January 2020.
