The Rotorua Lakes District is a fisher’s paradise for anyone keen to hook a prize rainbow or brown trout from one of our 13 fishable lakes, and several rivers and streams.

According to New Zealand Fishing World, some of the biggest wild fish to be found in the country are in two of Rotorua's little city streams, and “will test the ability of the very best anglers on the planet.”
Fully licensed guides and vessels will take you to their favourite spots, or you can go it alone (but then who will be your witness of the one that got away?).

Ngongotaha Trout Hatchery is perfect for families. Admission is only $3 per child and they're 100% guaranteed to land a fish!
If you’re up for better fishing stories, take things up a notch by getting delivered by helicopter into the middle of nowhere to a remote river that’s nearly impossible to reach any other way.
