The West Coast Fish and Game Region extends from Kahurangi point, north of Karamea, to Awarua point south of Haast. In between lies some 2m hectares, much of it in wilderness. With the pressures of modern life, increasing numbers of anglers rate isolation, peace and solitude almost as highly as the opportunity to fish for wild trout.
Although the West Coast climate is not generally suited to upland gamebirds the Region abounds with habitat for species that require wetlands. Grey and mallard duck, shoveler, Paradise shelduck and Pukeko are the predominant species. Good opportunities also exist for Canada goose hunting.
