Wellington highlights

Watch this for some of the highlights of the fantastic fishing available in the Wellington region.

Welcome

An extensive range of local angling opportunities ranges from spectacular wilderness back country streams in the Kaimanawa, Ruahine, or Tararua Forest Parks – to highly productive rivers (like the Hutt River).

There is an abundance of game bird hunting opportunities available on public land in the Wellington Fish & game Region. Some of the very best game hunting is available within two hours’ drive of the major urban areas.
