“There is a reason that Southland is one of the best trout fishing regions in the country and that is the weather. It’s cool and damp for much of the time, especially in the summer. The rivers keep flowing
and nothing gets too hot or too dry … so it will be a difficult decision for anglers just which of the marvellous angling opportunities in Southland to sample.” (Maurice Rodway, Manager Fish & Game Southland).
