"There is a reason that Southland is one of the best trout fishing regions in the country and that is the weather. It's cool and damp for much of the time, especially in the summer. The rivers keep flowing and nothing gets too hot or too dry... so it will be a difficult decision for anglers just which of the marvellous angling opportunities in Southland to sample." (Maurice Rodway, Manager Fish & Game Southland).

It is no exaggeration to say that within one hour of the Lumsden Motel, you will find yourself in some truly amazing places!
