Waiohine River - Waiohine Valley Roads
FishingInteresting tips


This large tributary of the Ruamahunga River flows from the eastern side of the Tararua Range and can provide excellent wilderness fishing in the upper reaches for the fit angler. Access to the middle and lower reaches is off a number of roads that parallel the river upstream or downstream of SH2. Fishing is fair to good in these reaches, depending on the frequency and severity of flood flows. Fly fishing is the favoured method, but spinning and bait fishing are common and successful methods. Access to the Tararua Forest Park is by the Waiohine Gorge Road to Walls Whare and walking from there. Alternatively, a climb up and over Mt Holdsworth from Mt Holdsworth Road will get a very fit angler into the mid Waiohine Hut (please check trip time and weather before attempting this tramp). The fishing within the Forest Park is a very enjoyable experience in lovely surroundings. Heading upstream from Totara Flats is only recommended for the very fit angler.
