Guided Fishing Trips

Fly, troll or spin

You don’t have to travel far from Whare Kea Lodge to find your own piece of paradise in which to fish, with the lake, rivers and streams around Wanaka brimming with New Zealand salmon and trout.

Climb aboard an 8m luxury launch, drop your line and troll for trout on a relaxing lake cruise with Adventure Wanaka.  Regardless of whether you are an absolute beginner or a seasoned expert,  you will have an exhilarating and beautifully scenic day of fishing.

For those more experienced – expert local guide Ian Cole offers a wide range of tailor-made fly-fishing packages, starting from hourly lessons to full-day excursions, with the option of heli-fishing: accessing spectacular remote spots via helicopter and camping overnight.

The best months for fly fishing in New Zealand are in summer, from October to March.

Guests of Whare Kea can take their catch back to the kitchen where one of our chefs will prepare it on request.
