Hunting and Fishing

Wine tour (1)Marlborough is a outdoor mecca for sports persons.

The Wairau and Buller Rivers both contain good numbers of brown trout and both waters offer both excellent fly/thread-line fishing opportunity.  The upper Wairau and Goulter Rivers offer excellent fly fishing/wilderness type fishing water.Spring Creek river offers a unique challenge to fly fisherman and is very popular with visiting anglers.  Double figure browns where very common in this stunning fishery which winds though Marlborough vineyards but in recent years numbers have declined with the change in land use however it still holds some very formidable fish.The local river mouths still experience strong runs of Kawhai during the warmer months and are easy targets for visitors. A great sport fish when caught on a fly rod!

The nearby Marlborough Sounds is another great local fishery.  Blue cod, snapper, tarakihi, groper and king-fish are found in abundant numbers throughout all seasons. Crayfish, scallops and paua diving is a very popular pastime for many visitors.

When your finished fishing and diving you can also chase wild pig, red and fallow deer in the nearby hills.
