The Hawke’s Bay is a diverse fishery with extensive river fishing opportunities which include some spectacular headwater fishing as well as the easily accessible lowland streams.
Lake fishing is limited. Lake Tutira is the major lake fishery in the region and stocked with fast growing Tararwera rainbows. There are a number of smaller lakes in the region which provide both brown and rainbow trout opportunities and, that special family picnic/small lake fishing experience.
The major river systems are the Mohaka, Tutaekuri, Ngaruroro, Waipawa and Tukituki The Ngaruroro and Mohaka River headwater wilderness fisheries are nationally rated and offer anglers the chance to catch trophy sized fish in gin clear waters. The middle and lower reaches of these rivers are easily accessible from a variety of public roads and provide anglers with vast amounts of fishable water.
Both brown and rainbow trout prevalent throughout the region.
