Finding the ponds
The ponds are located inside the Waimea river berm park at Appleby. Take highway 60 from the 3 Brothers corner roundabout towards Motueka for about 3 kilometres. About 100 meters past the Appleby Bridge turn left into River Road. Travel on River road about 1.5 kilometers and watch for a road/track off to the left over the stop-bank. This turn-off should be signposted on fishout days.
Follow the track about 2 kilometres heading up stream. Drive cautiously on the track and watch for oncoming vehicles. You need to go approximately half a kilometre past the old paint-ball site and the ponds will be obvious. Parking is at the western end of the ponds where the Trust facilities and toilets are located.
