Trout Fishing in our Local Wilderness Rivers & Streams
Ruapehu and the surrounding areas boast world-class wilderness fishing offering angling of all types, from Trophy lake fishing (Otamangakau 20 min east of National Park Village) to the ever challenging wilderness backcountry head waters. You can choose between sight fishing for large trout in streams almost small enough to jump over, to targeting the evening rise on large boulder strewn rivers.
Whakapapa River is the largest tributary of the Whanganui River and one of New Zealand’s finest trout fisheries. All year round – in the upper reaches water clarity usually exceeds 15 metres.
