BREAKING NEWS! 

HAWKE’S BAY RIVER CHAMPIONSHIPS ARE BEING HELD ON A SECTION OF THE MOHAKA RIVER SATURDAY 29TH-SUNDAY 30TH JANUARY

Sport Fly Fishing New Zealand (SFFNZ) would like to respectfully notify our fellow anglers that the Hawkes Bay River Championships will be held on a section of the Mohaka River, across the weekend of Saturday 29th/Sunday 30th January.

This notification is being made out of consideration for other fishermen, so they are not disappointed to find the competition underway on that weekend had they made plans to fish this particular stretch of river at that time.

The area being fished in the competition is from Just above the Mohaka River Farm, McVicar Road to the SH5 Bridge.

The event will run from 8.30am-7.15pm on Saturday 29th January and 8.30am-1.15pm on Sunday 30th January 2022.

We would like to thank people for their understanding in advance. This of course does not mean people cannot fish the Mohaka River, it is just a heads up that there is a competition taking place and there is likely to be a lot of activity in this part of the river across these times. Other parts of the Mohaka River, such as Glen Falls, do not form part of the competition water.
