The Upper Clutha Angling Club was formed more than 50 years ago and is based in Wanaka. The majority of Club members are fly fishers. The Club organizes a range of activities each year. Activities include a Take a Kid Fishing Day, working on small fisheries enhancement projects, running a Beginner Fly Fishing Course (the course is held every second year with the next due in 2020), several Club Fishing Trips away from Wanaka each year, making submissions on developments that may affect fisheries and occasional social events. The Club has a hut located at Makarora which members can use for a small hut fee.
