The Oreti ranks as one of New Zealand's most popular rivers. And rightly so, as it has a good head of large brown trout where a possible double figure fish is on the cards-with luck on your side of course! Although the upper reaches are sought after beats, lower down the system you can find miles of bank without seeing another fishermen. Mat McHugh and I explored these downstream stretches and encountered some decent trout.
