For an overnight trout fishing trip I recommend the famous Ruakituri river in northern Hawkes Bay. Stay for 1 to 3 nights in a local farm cottage on the upper reaches.
Enjoy real back country wilderness fishing and the chance to catch a magnificent trophy brown or rainbow trout. This unique river is a must-fish spot in the North Island of New Zealand.
The Ruakituri River is known by anglers far and wide as the home of some of the strongest, wildest trout in New Zealand.
The Ruakituri is an isolated river that rises in the remote Urewera National Park north of Lake Waikaremoana, draining the Huiarau Range and flowing for many kilometres through rugged and remote bush-clad backcountry.
This relatively inaccessible river offers superb fly fishing for over 30km. There is another 20km of water in the headwaters for active anglers proficient in bushcraft and prepared to tramp.
Most trout are caught in the Ruakituri on well weighted caddis & mayfly nymphs. On summer evenings there is often an active splashy caddis rise on some of the more quietly flowing pools.
Fishing season: 1 Oct-30 June. Fly fishing only
