Lake Ohakuri, southwest of Rotorua, is the largest artificial lake of the Waikato River system.
This sheltered lake is known for its calm waters and is a popular spot for boaters, wakeboarders and water skiers.
Lake Ohakuri is a deep lake with a high population of rainbow and brown trout that can be caught by a variety of methods. It’s a popular lake for water sports of all sorts, but its size and shape means that there is plenty of space for the angler who wishes to get away from it all.
Due to electricity generation, the lake levels tend to rise and fall radically from time to time.
