We have done some digging around with the locals and found the best Trout fishing spots in Gore.
...Gotcha! We tried but of course no-one would give away their sacred fishing spots. However we can give you some information to help you get out and get a catch.
The Mataura River runs through Gore and out to sea at Toetoes Bay at the bottom of the South Island near Invercargill. Reputed to be the ultimate in dry fly angling for Brown Trout the Mataura River is a Trout fishers dream.
Many come to Gore to try their luck on their own however there are many options for guided fishing trips here are a few we found:

Heartland Hotel Croydon is located in Gore and offers fantastic comfortable accommodation - perfect to rest up for another day of fishing.
