Hot Favorite Fishing Spots in Middle Earth

New Zealand was one of the last islands to be settled by humans because of its remoteness. But as of today there are approximately 4.4 million people residing in the country located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The two main landmasses the North and the South Islands and numerous small islands have made it a beautiful place to live in. The distinctive bio diversity adds to its charm. You would not be sorry if you make it your next holiday destination.


Surrounded by water on all sides the country provides some excellent fishing opportunities and that includes both freshwater and saltwater fishing- so this could become one of your favorite fishing destinations of all times. And let me help you out here. Below are some popular fishing spots that the kiwis most definitely recommend.

Rangitaiki River System: This is the ideal place for all levels of fishing expertise. The crystal clear water of the river has both brown and rainbow trout. Use a dry fly with a weighted nymph dropper- that is the most successful method of fishing here.

Waiteti Stream: This place is known to hold fish throughout the year with winter being the most productive season. Small dry flies with a dropper nymph throughout the summer months and lightly weighted nymphs though the winter season is recommended.

Spring Creeks: Within 45 minutes drive of Rotorua, there are several free stone spring creeks that can be found. You can haul a brown trout or a rainbow trout ranging between 1-3kgs.

Mohaka River, Tongariro River, Awahou, Waioweka River are some of the finest fishing fly fishing spots in the country. So if you are a fly fisherman, you should not miss these spots at any cost.

The wonderful beaches are also not far behind. Go surfcasting on Pukehina Beach – find all from snapper to crabs. If you are in search for a herring, head out to Kaituna Falls Scenic Reserve. Thorton Beach, Bowentown Beach, Moturiki Island are a must visit.
