Most of New Zealand’s salmon run is contained within the border of the Central South Island (CSI) and North Canterbury Fish & Game regions. The Rangitata River mouth is one of the best known locations.
Smaller rivers, including the Opihi-Temuka and Ashburton, together with many high country lakes provide habitat for substantial brown and rainbow trout fisheries.
Many of CSI’s larger river beds and lakes are public lands, which provides good access to game bird hunting across the region. Of course, it’s important to advise adjoining landowners when you wish to hunt these areas.
