This lagoon lies to the west of the road to Tods Corner approximately one kilometre from the Lake Hwy turnoff. Stocked with adult browns each year it offers good fly fishing, no other methods are permitted. There is a restricted bag limit of two fish here with minimum size of 400 mm with only one fish over 500 mm.

Recreational Fish Management

Bruisers Lagoon is managed as a Wild Trout Fishery. There is no natural recruitment therefore annual stocking by the Inland Fisheries Service of wild brown trout maintains populations.

Native Fish Management

Two native species, the Spotted galaxias (Galaxias truttaceus) and the Climbing galaxias (Galaxiasbrevipinnis) may be present in Bruisers Lagoon.
