The Waitawheta River

The Waitawheta is a backcountry river that is very scenic, particularly in the upper reaches where it flows through bush land of the Karangahake Gorge. 

The lower and middle reaches flow over open farmland providing a different but enjoyable setting to fish.

Fish numbers are excellent with sizes averaging 1 - 2 Kg (2 - 5 pounds)
