River Flow & Lake Info

If you are planning on going on a fishing trip within the Taranaki Region then it may pay to check out the current river level of where you intend to fish.

Knowing current river level and weather forecasts for the areas times you plan your fishing trips will allow you to make an informed decision on which rivers to fish during and after rainfall. River flow data used in conjunction with a weather forecast means you can decide where to go and when, what to take and how to fish in order to make your trip as successful as possible.
