World’s best sighted trout fishery at our doorstep
After fishing around a lot of New Zealand, it became obvious to me that the Murchison/Nelson Lakes region of the South Island has the best sighted brown trout fishery in the world.
Owen River Lodge is located right in the middle of this area.
Our special site affords you an enormous choice and variety of rivers, streams and lakes to fish. Over 25 rivers and streams are accessible within a 90 minute drive.
If this wasn’t enough, our position right on the boundary of Kahurangi National Park means you can quickly and easily fly into another dozen or so stunning wilderness streams.
