Lake Rotoroa Lodge Fly Fishing
- Nelson Lakes
In 2000 National Geographic Adventure magazine named Lake Rotoroa Lodge as one of the two finest trout fishing venues in the world.
Lake Rotoroa Lodge lies in the heart of South Island fly fishing country, which gives us access to more fishing than any other lodge in New Zealand. We have more than 22 rivers to choose from by car on a normal weather day, and more by helicopter. This allows us to rest our waters and offer a great mix of fly fishing experiences, from the more productive waters, to the more challenging for the fish of a lifetime. With our numerous rivers and diverse locations, fishing options in inclement weather are greatly improved.
No Need to Travel with Equipment
We recognize that increasingly our guests would prefer not to drag their fishing gear around with them for a three-week trip for the sake of one week's fishing. We have responded by buying equipment to lend to our guests. We have men's and women's waders, wading boots of all shapes and sizes, and over 40 rods in-house ranging from 3 to 6 weights in brands such as Thomas & Thomas, Sage and Hardy.
Our Professional Fishing Guides
We are proud of our guide crew. All of them have the imperative skills of very keen eyes and great knowledge of their local rivers from how the brown trout behave to the entomology required as the season progresses - these skills are a vital qualification for them to work at Lake Rotoroa Lodge.
We also believe that teamwork is critical to success on the river. They are skilled not only at teaching but at tailoring each individual day to suit the many and varied requirements of our guests. Many of our guests just enjoy time on the water with a local New Zealander - learning about the country is as much fun as catching the next fish.
All of these factors we believe contribute to a great guide and we have 100% confidence that a day on the water with a Lake Rotoroa Lodge guide will not just be a fishing experience.
Why not go on an adventurous hunting outing to hunt Deer, Thar or Chamois? We offer guided hunting trips and safaris.
Accommodation at the Lodge
From the lodge's idyllic and romantic lakeside location, guests can gaze along the length of Lake Rotoroa to the towering peaks of the Travers Range, and lapping at the foot of the lodge lawn, the waters of the Gowan River may just cause them to become lost in thoughts of some of the world's finest brown trout fishing that can begin just a few short steps away. Enjoy this stunning view from the lodge's open-fired sitting room, dining room or, indeed, from many of our guest rooms.
Enjoy a luxury stay in one of our ten individual guest rooms. One of the key ingredients of a stay in a luxury lodge is the quality of the food and wines on offer, and our chefs delight in designing and preparing meals for small numbers of discerning guests.
Add to that an extensive wine cellar, which showcases the finest, and world class, New Zealand and Australian wines and you should already be starting to enjoy your time with us.
