Wanaka Fly Fishing is only 45 minutes' drive from Queenstown, and we have it all here: stunning mountain scenery, the sunshine, the Vivaldi four- season weather. And we have superb trout waters: several lakes, numerous rivers and streams. We also have an ALL-YEAR FISHING SEASON. In the Southern Lakes District - around Wanaka, Hawea, Queenstown, Cromwell and Te Anau, there is always somewhere you can go fly fishing for trout.
Wanaka Fly Fishing provides courtesy 4wd transport, quality lunches, all custom-tied flies, photos and can provide all top quality equipment if required. We can arrange all your accommodation needs as well if you so choose.
Wanaka Fly Fishing caters for the never-evers and experts alike, with custom-made guided fishing adventures, flyfishing tuition or wilderness fishing safaris. Within 15-90 minutes drive from Wanaka, lakes, rivers and numerous streams are home to brown and rainbow trout as well as salmon. Fishing Wanaka and the south of the South Island can be action packed all year round but Spring (Oct-Nov) is generally the best in the Wanaka area. Other regions serviced afford better fishing in high summer and autumn.
