Are you a keen angler or hunter or both who’d like a bigger say in how fishing and game bird hunting is managed?

Welcome

The region runs inland to include the whole of both the Clutha and Taieri River catchments as well as a number of smaller coastal river catchments such as the Catlins, Tahakopa, Tokomairiro, Waikouaiti and Shag.

Otago has, without doubt, some of the most diverse waters for sports fishing in New Zealand. They range from the unique high country experiences on gin clear southern lakes river tributaries, to ‘put and take’ reservoir fisheries in Dunedin City.

The Otago Region also offers veritable smorgasbord of game bird hunting  from mallards on large coastal wetlands to upland game upon briar rose-strewn Central Otago hills. In between there are countless pond and river bank hunting opportunities, along with small stream stalking and evening shooting over grain crops. Otago pretty much has it all when it comes to game bird hunting
