The Rakaia River Salmon Fishing Competition is a major highlight on the angler’s social calendar. Entry tickets are usually limited due to the size of the hall at Rakaia where the prize-giving is held. So if you wish to enter it pays to get your tickets early. The competition runs over three days during late February and early March. It is very well run, has tremendous prizes, and attracts entrants from all over new Zealand. For tickets and further details see the Rakaia River Fishing Promotions link below.
Rakaia River Fishing Promotions have been running a salmon fishing competition since 1983 which makes us the most successful fresh water fishing competition and the only salmon fishing competition in New Zealand.
