Fishing in New Zealand
With no single part of the country being more than 128km away from the sea and over 15000km of productive coastline overall, there’s always a fishing hole with your name on it in New Zealand. Whether you’re a die-hard offshore fanatic or never depart from your trusty compendium of freshwater flies, these waterways do not discriminate. Starting at the top, the fabled pelagic fisheries of the North Island are well known for its abundant bluewater stock, especially prominent throughout the summer migration. The Bay of Islands still holds many of the all-time records for the likes of Swordfish, Striped Marlin and Yellowtail Kingfish, while the offshore reefs of the nearby Bay of Plenty live up fully to its name, with ample amounts of Snapper, Tarakihi, Kingfish and Kawahai (i.e. Australian Salmon), all delectable table fare. Many of the world’s favorite game fish join the party December thru June, including the prized Blue Marlin, Spearfish, Mahi Mahi, Albacore Tuna, Broadbill Swordfish and many more. For the enthusiastic fly fisherfolk, on the other hand, a myriad of rivers and freshwater lakes such as Lake Taupo, Tukituki and Mohaka Rivers embellish both the islands, often praised as some of the best Rainbow and Brown Trout repositories in the world.
