Yes, it has always been first Saturday in November. Unfortunately due to internal breakdown the Angler Notice for this season is an exact copy of last years so 1st November will be the opening day. Luckily we didn’t make any changes to the AN this year so its only the roll-over of dates that was caught.
Sorry about this
