Mathias’s Dam: The dam is on the east side of the Maniototo and is part of the east side irrigation system. Because of this it is connected to the Taieri River and it has a permanent influx of small brown trout coming down the race. Fish and Game also stock this water but mainly with rainbow trout. It has a bag limit of three fish and the season runs from 1 October to 30 April.
Access: Again this water is on private property and access is by the Waipiata-Patearoa road. After you pass the Hamilton’s turn off and the tarseal ends, the gate is on your left beside a large willow. Travel slowly as there sometimes electric fences over the access way. These always have handgrips on them so please put them back as you find them.
