Guided fishing on the Clarence River

Map of the Clarence River, North Canterbury

The Clarence River (Waiau Toa in Māori) at around 209 kilometres, is the longest river in Canterbury and the eighth longest in New Zealand. It rises in the Spenser Mountain Range and flows through the Kaikōura Ranges in the northeast of New Zealand’s South Island. A section of the Clarence comes close to Hanmer Springs and can be reached by a short drive from Hanmer Springs.

The Clarence river catchment offers a unique and very different upland fishing experience. Good numbers of medium sized fish in certain sections that are eager for a dry fly on those searing hot summer days the area is known for.
