Guided fishing on the Waiau River

Map of the Waiau Uwha River, North Canterbury

Waiau Uwha River, previously known as the Waiau River, is a river in north Canterbury in the South Island of New Zealand. The Waiau Uwha River rises in the Spenser Mountains and flows eastward to the Pacific Ocean. In 2018, the name of the river was officially changed from Waiau River to Waiau Uwha River, to reflect its original Māori name, and to distinguish it from the longer Waiau River in Southland. Renowned for big solid trout, this river has good numbers of them. The occasional large sea run make an appearance at times. Remote, big, and wild, it is best accessed by helicopter.
