Fishing Tours

NZ features in the top 10 locations for freshwater fishing in the world. Most of the New Zealand rivers are open October 1st until April 30th. Others are open all year.  Some of our rivers have fish counts in the hundreds per kilometre and we can take you there. We can offer fly fishing, spinning or soft baiting for Rainbow and Brown trout.

Our fishing trips are designed for small groups who wish to access a specific species or an area that does not get the pressure of many of NZ’s road ends, or walking tracks, with options of overnight trips or multi-day adventures.  We can design an overnight or multiday trip that will put you right amongst the action and put you in the epicentre of trout habitats.

Backcountry Fishing Day trips

The Hurunui river has consistently been classified as one the best trout habitats in the country with high numbers of good quality fish.  Flowing out of Lake Sumner the Hurunui is the perfect habitat for trout with fast flowing water, deep pools and long calm stretches that are not easy to access, giving these fish a great habitat. We like to make an early start for this trip but will customise to suit you and your schedule. This trip is also available as an overnight fully catered fishing adventure accessing over 16kms of river that is only accessible by raft.

Further day trip options are available and will often utilise a helicopter for access. We will hike the river finding the best water to fish and be picked up late afternoon after a riverside lunch.

Multi-day Fishing trips

Overnight fishing trips get you amongst the action allowing us to be on the spot for the morning and evening rise when trout are most active. 2-5 day multi day trips are available where we can target areas of interest and fish multiple stretches of river. During our multi-day fishing trips, we will usually plan to fish the morning and evening rise and raft down to the next camp during the peak of the day.

You will have the ability to focus on a certain section or tributary all day long dependent on what you would like to do and how many days you want to spend with us. A breakdown of the trip will be discussed prior to commencement and customized to your needs. All transport, camping and cooking equipment is supplied.
