The Fork Stream is a river in the Canterbury Region of New Zealand. It arises in the Gamack Range and flows south-east into the Tekapo River, which exits at Lake Benmore and eventually via the Waitaki River into the Pacific Ocean. Fraser Stream is a tributary.[1][2] A high proportion of the stream's flow comes from snow melt.[3]

There are trout in the stream.[4]
