The Ahuriri River is a fishery of national importance with trophy trout providing sport for the experienced angler in the pristine upper reaches. Much of the upper portion of the river is in the Ahuriri Conservation Park, and it's a well-regarded fly fishing river, containing both brown and rainbow trout. The WCO passed in 1990 recognises the river and its tributaries as an area of outstanding wildlife habitat and fisheries.
