If you rate isolation peace and solitude highly as an angler, and the chance to fish for wild trout, this region is for you.
While the region offers abundant fly fishing opportunities, there is also plenty of scope for other anglers including novices, to fish using bait or spinning gear. Many of the rivers support trout populations and sea-run salmon turn up in local lakes and rivers from January.
Grey and mallard duck, shoveler, paradise shelduck and pukeko are the main species. There are also opportunities for hunting Canada geese. Later in the season there are great hunting opportunities on developed farm properties, particularly where stock are being fed with supplements such as grain or silage.
