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.
