The Whanganui River

The Whanganui is a major river in the North Island with its upper reaches inside Tongariro National Park. This provides excellent backcountry fishing for anglers who have some fitness and enjoy a challange.

Fish are off good sizes averaging over 2 kg (4-5lb). The river snakes it's way through native bush but still conveniently provides numerous open pools to fish. 

Multi-Day Trip only
