Central south island region

Fish & Game New Zealand’s Central South Island region extends from the south bank of the Rakaia River in the north, to Moeraki in the south. With their headwaters in the Southern Alps, the Waitaki and the Rangitata are the region’s biggest rivers.

Many of Central South Island's larger riverbeds and lakes are public lands, meaning there is good access to game bird hunting across the region. Of course, it is important to advise the adjoining landowner when you wish to hunt these areas.

These pages will keep you up to date with important and timely information about fishing and hunting in the Central South Island region. See the menu to the Right for navigation options.

Have you fished the upper Ahuriri River above Longslip Creek this season?

If the answer is “yes” Central South Island Fish & Game would like to hear about your angling experience.
