One hundred years ago, trout were liberated in the rivers and streams that feed into Lake Taupo.
Today, we are the trout fishing capital of the world and this region is acclaimed world-wide for being one of the finest and last remaining real wild trout fisheries in existence - and it is open 12 months of the year.
Whether you are an experienced angler or have never experienced the ‘lure’ of fly fishing, you’ll do best with a professional guide for your first Taupo fishing experience.
Your guide can take you to the ‘best-kept-secret’ spots, on a jaunt that can last a few hours or a full day. Shore-based trout fishing around the Lake Taupo is also very good and a number of locations are well-known for outstanding results.
Helicopter fly fishing is an absolute thrill, enabling you to access remote and unmatched fishing grounds. Catch and release your prize or bring a fat fresh trout back to Wairakei Resort Taupo and we’ll cook it for you!
