Coromandel rivers are popular with trout anglers who appreciate the large amount of accessible fishing water and superb scenery.  Many of these waters can easily be fished on a day trip from Auckland or Hamilton but if you want to stay longer then camping sites are located beside most rivers.

Rainbow trout are present in all rivers described in this pamphlet.  Brown trout are present in the Waihou system and are common in some feeder streams including the Waitawheta and Waitekauri but they are absence from other Coromandel rivers due to high water temperatures.
