Fishing

Wilkin_TroutJust down the bottom of our land is the Manuherikia River, 1.5km of it bordering the property.  This is known as a good trout river of intermediate level with sight fishing for brown trout.  There are trout accessible from our land, but it's more of a casual spot.

There are also several high country dams available for casual fishing - namely the Poolburn and the Manorburn.

For the experienced fisherman we have an excellent local guide who knows the local places - the private valleys, the monster fisheries, and how to get all those permissions to access these.  As well of course as the flies, the conditions, the winds etc.

We are well located to take advantage of excellent fishing from Gore to Queenstown and Wanaka and down to the Taieri and can arrange knowledgeable local guides in any one of these areas.  If you wish, we can arrange for a day of heli-fishing, taking advantage of a number of different places.
