caught trout on the rangitikei


The Rangitikei River is internationally famous for both rainbow and brown trout fishing. Awastone is right on the river so it is easy to make an effort to "rip some lips".
We do run private fishing trips by enquiry and is dependant on the time of year, availability & river conditions.
Everyone, of any age, must carry a valid New Zealand Sports Fishing Licence with them (or be named on a family licence with the primary licence holder present) when fishing for sports fish in New Zealand.
