The Tutaekuri River flows east from the Kaweka Range, reaching the Pacific Ocean just to the south of Napier, where the Ngaruroro and Clive Rivers join it.
The Tutaekuri river offers over 130 km of fishable water. The river offers the angler a wide range of fishing experiences from chasing large sea-run brown trout in the very lower reaches to the almost wilderness experience of fishing for large rainbow trout in the upper reaches. Throughout its length this river offers top-quality fishing for all angling methods.

Riverside Park in Taradale is a great spot to enjoy a picnic by the river. Pack the bikes as well and enjoy a ride at the Taradale Dirt Park and Pump Track while you're there.
