The fish is ready, the rods are waiting! We're open daily for a fishing experience like no other!

In Golden Bay, just between Kahurangi National Park and Abel Tasman National Park, and a 1.5 hour drive from Nelson, you'll find a unique freshwater fishing experience. Situated on the banks of the Anatoki River with a tranquil backdrop of native bush, you can relax and catch Chinook salmon. Entry and use of fishing rods is free. You only pay for what you catch. Open 7 days a week, year round (except Christmas Day). Bring your camera and go for the catch of the day!
