Nelson Marlborough Fishing Locations & Access

Welcome

The many rivers and streams, flats, estuaries, wetlands, along with the Marlborough Sounds also offer excellent game bird hunting opportunities. Mallard duck are the dominant species.

Mallard thrive in the coastal estuaries of Motueka, for example, and there are plenty of quail in the forest margins. Grey duck, mallard, paradise shelduck and black swan can all be found in the Golden Bay area.
