Fifteen fishable lakes, a myriad of streams and three different species of trout to fish for using virtually every conceivable legal method known to anglers.

There really is something for everyone, whether it is trophy sized rainbow or brown trout, boat fishing on lakes that have large numbers of more "normal" sized fish or stalking fish along lake or stream margins.

The only difficulty is choosing where to fish! The old adage that 10% of the anglers catch 90% of the fish is too close to the truth for comfort. So get a guide who knows where to go and what to do.


Day One

Link up with Cruise and Fish and take a charter around one of the many fishable lakes on a small catamaran, guided by a local expert who knows where the fish are biting. Or don the waders and settle in at the mouth or outlets of one of Rotorua’s many streams and try your luck fly fishing.


Sail around Lake Tarawera with Clearwater Cruises aboard one of their luxury launches waiting for the fish to come to you. Offering private and secluded charters, Clearwater can cater to whatever fishing tickles your fancy.


Day Two

Board Pure Cruise's luxury yacht Tuia and spend the day being guided around the coves and bays of Lake Rotoiti and as you search for that illusive trout. If it all doesn’t go to plan, spend the afternoon soaking at the Manupirua thermal springs - only accessible by boat.
