Wellington

Wellington Region

The Wellington Region encompasses the area roughly from Waiouru, across to Norsewood and south to Cook Strait. It includes four large river catchments: the Rangitikei, Manawatu, Ruamahanga, and Hutt.

Trout and angling under threat

Trout and salmon are facing one of the most serious threats posed to them as a result of new legislation just introduced to Parliament.

Weekly Fishing Reports

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.
