When it comes to brown trout fishing, Taupo anglers and fishermen from all over the world dream of having the opportunity to delicately present a fly to a trophy fish and engage a battle with one of NZ’s premier sport fish. Lake Taupo is home to some of NZ’s largest and wildest brown trout. Fishing these waters is an opportunity not to be missed. Brown trout are spawning in the summer months and the Lower Tongariro becomes home to hundreds of large fish, sometimes pushing well over the 10-pound trophy mark.

The ultimate overnight fly fishing adventure!. The area’s we explore on this fly fishing adventure are only really accessible via the river which means you get to spend a couple of days in untouched water. December and January are popular months for our overnight adventure fishing trips as the upper river holds huge numbers of trout at this time of year due to late-spawning fish from Lake Taupo. Combine exciting rapids with beautiful scenery and of course excellent Tongariro fly fishing, then camp out on the banks of the river under the stars, creating a fantastic wilderness experience.
