The Pomahaka River is in South Otago in New Zealand's South Island. It is a tributary of the Clutha River, flowing south for 80 kilometres (50 mi) from the Old Man Range of mountains to join the Clutha just north of Balclutha. Along its path it passes the Blue Mountains and the forestry town of Tapanui in the area known locally as West Otago.
The Pomahaka River has been suffering from declining water quality in recent years due to land use intensification, and many have said that this has led to a decline in the trout and salmon fishery.
