RAFT FISHING

World famous fishing, only accessible by raft

This wilderness section of the river, with its crystal clear pools and unspoiled runs, gets minimal angling pressure compared to the lower Tongariro and can, therefore, deliver exceptional fishing.
The upper river is open to anglers from December 1st to May 31st each year.
