Otago Fish & Game has recently liberated 200 rainbow trout into Butchers Dam, near Alexandra, for a junior fishing competition.
Three of these rainbows are marked with an orange tag in the dorsal fin. If a junior angler catches a tagged fish, send Otago Fish & Game a photo of the fish with the tag still attached to win a rod and reel. The competition is open to all licensed anglers aged 17 years and under.
These rainbows are in excellent condition. The fish are 2 years old and were raised in the Macraes trout hatchery.
The prizes, donated by Mike Teasdale Motors, can be collected from the Otago Fish & Game office in Cromwell.
