The West Coast Fish & Game Region extends from Kahurangi Point, north of Karamea, to Awarua Point south of Haast. In between lies some 2m hectares, much of it wilderness. With the pressures of modern life, increasing numbers of anglers rate isolation, peace and solitude almost as highly as the opportunity to fish for wild trout. On the Å’Coast these attributes exist in abundance along with a surprising diversity of angling opportunity.

Fishing for Trout is year-round in some areas, Salmon is seasonal. Licences are required.

Fishing guides are available. Please advise if required, or visit The Best of New Zealand Fly Fishing

Surf cast minutes from your front door for Rig, Kawhai or Snapper. Crayfish along the coast, gather Mussels or Whitebait in season.
