Whanganui River (Taranaki region)

Whanganui River (Taranaki region)

A massive river system with many tributaries. Warning: The entire system holds fish that can get to the size of logs and can make an angler's knees rattle so hard it's hard to be stealthy. New Zealand Trout App is still gathering data to unlock further waterways, access points and it's awesome fishery.

Local Knowledge
