The Hutt River is an excellent trout fishery, and easily reached via the Hutt River Trail or service roads. Popular spots include the section from Silverstream to Moonshine bridge and Melling to Kennedy Good bridge.

To fish the Hutt River you must have a fishing licence. These are available from sporting goods stores or from Fish and Game New Zealand.

Salt water fishing is popular on and downstream of the Hutt Estuary bridge.
