Where To Go Fly Fishing In New Zealand

If you are planning on going fly fishing in New Zealand, you are truly spoilt for choice. There are so many
wonderful locations in the fly fishing guides, both in the North Island and the South Island, that the
problem is not finding a few good ones, but ruling out ones that in any other country would be your first choice.

Here are a few top locations that will guarantee you great sport, and always the possibility of a monster catch.

The North Island has what are arguably the largest wild rainbow trout anywhere. Rotorua is a magnet for fly
fishermen. There are some wonderful rivers and streams, such as the Rangitaiki, the Whirinaki, and the Waihou, but the numerous lakes in the region are the place for big fish. More 10 lb+ fish are caught here than in any other part of the country.

Then, of course, there is Lake Taupo, which is in the centre of the island, and where fly fishing nz really took off over 100 years ago. Many tributaries feed the lake, perhaps the most impressive being the Tongariro River. Flowing in the Hawke’s Bay and Wellington areas in the lower North Island are hundreds of kilometres of large rivers and tributaries. Mostly rain-fed and rising in the hills, they are best fished in the middle and upper reaches.

On the central area of the South Island, there are waters on both sides of the Southern Alps where and-locked salmon in the large lakes there are the bulk of the catch, especially in the east. On the western side, according to the fly fishing guides, the rainfall is much higher and the rivers tend to be short and faster flowing, but whatever your choice, you are certain of a good catch. In the southern part of the South Island lies the Mataura which offers over 100 kilometres of ideal dry fly water. Some of the rivers here flow so strongly that they are only fishable in the driest parts of the year, but there are also many lakes around the remote Fiordland.

At the top of the South Island is the Nelson Marlborough area which contains three large national parks. This is recognised as the top brown trout area in the country. The fish are not easy to catch here, and will test the skill of the finest anglers. Whether your choice is the
North Island or the South, you are sure of wonderful scenery, and the fly fishing nz experience of a lifetime.
