Formed in 1881, the Otago Anglers Association is the oldest still running angling club in New Zealand, and possibly Australiasia. The aims and objectives of the club is "to encourage the art of angling, the fostering of friendship and emulate amongst anglers by mean of fishing competitions and obtaining useful information regarding the various streams in the district".
Today the club is thriving and in good heart with a strong emphasis on family involvement. Our main interest is in trout fishing but our activities cover all types of angling from dangling a line from the wharf to salmon fishing. We cater for all types of angler from the complete novice to the expert and new faces are always welcome. We have well appointed clubrooms fitted with all the relevant facilities and these are the focal point of the club where we hold all of our weekly meetings, weigh ins, barbeques and various other social functions.
In addition to the clubrooms, we own two fishing lodges which are very popular and are available to members and their families at an extremely low rental cost. This can be on bunk only basis, or if privacy is required, lodges can be rented for exclusive use only.

Kaitangata team won it with 22 fish with a total of 23.910KG followed by Clutha team. The heaviest personal bag weighed in was by Shane Hansen with 6 fish with a weight of 7.150kg.
Chris Dalton's Fishing Trip to Maniototo
With work and home commitments it has been hard to get out for a fish in the weekends, also the weather has not helped. The rivers have been up high and flooding for most of the new year. So when the chance came to go fishing it was still water or nothing. Gordon said how about the Maniototo. I am not a great still water fisherman but was very keen to get out for a fish.
