Waikaremoana Lakes Fishery

Lake Waikaremoana is situated in the south east of Te Urewera.

It is the largest lake in the park, and was created by a giant land slide over 2000 years ago. Lake Kaitawa, Lake Whakamarino and Lake Waikaremoana and the nearby smaller Lake Waikareiti provide a number of different fishing opportunities for anglers. Trolling, stream mouth fishing, stalking shoreline brown trout or casting a fly for trophy rainbow trout are some of the options available on the different waterways.

Camping, excellent track and boat ramp facilities make this part of Te Urewera a must for anglers of all persuasions.

  • Lake Waikaremoana is located in Te Urewera in the North Island of New Zealand, 60 kilometres northwest of Wairoa and 80 kilometres west-southwest of Gisborne. It covers an area of 54 km².
