Until recently, New Zealand's spectacular Clutha River was threatened by four hydro dams proposed by Contact Energy, at Tuapeka Mouth, Beaumont, Queensberry and Luggate. This website remains active as a reminder that our New Zealand rivers are still not safe from commercial exploitation.

The Clutha River is an excellent fishery providing ready access to countless fly-fishing and spinning reaches. Abundant stocks of wild brown and rainbow trout and land-locked salmon, thrive along the length of the Clutha. The lower river has good populations of sea run and resident brown trout, and also has salmon spawning runs from January to April.
