Nelson / Marlborough Region

Fish & Game New Zealand’s Nelson/Marlborough region offers some of the best, most easily accessible brown trout fishing in the country. In fact many of New Zealand’s fishing guides who specialise in sighted brown trout fishing, work in this region.

The many rivers and streams, flats, estuaries, wetlands, and Marlborough Sounds also offer excellent game bird hunting opportunities. Mallard duck are the dominant species with lower numbers of native ducks depending on location.
