The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 78

Chapter XII

Chapter XII.

Trout Fishing in Taranaki can he obtained in nearly every stream which rises in Mount Egmont and as the rivers in their course to the sea are a succession of pools and rapids they are ideal places for all members of the Salmo family.

The kinds of Trout stocked are Loch Leven, Brown and Rainbow, and have been caught up to 12lbs.

In some parts of the District fair Pheasant Shooting may be obtained in the season, and in the interior the Native Pigeon, which are delicious eating, may be found-Hares are fairly plentiful in various parts, affording good sport with the hounds in the Hawera District, or for coursing and shooting. Californian Quail are not uncommon.
