Summer time in Taupo is the dry fly fisherman's Mecca. The tributary streams will still produce smaller fish to a well presented dry fly but most often the action is in the hills to the east of Lake Taupo.
Helicopter flights have opened up the rivers of the Kaweka, Kaimanawa and Urewera ranges to the fly fishermen. Such rivers as the Ngaruroro, Rangitikei, Mohaka, Raukituri and Waiau, to name just a few, produce brown and rainbow trout of trophy size.
The thrill of a big fish rising to take a tiny dry is an experience not to be missed, but a weighted nymph drifted through the deep pools will also bring heart-stopping action. This is the ultimate experience for the more competent angler.
The 'double figured' Rainbow and Brown trout can be sighted in the crystal clear streams, challenging your skills with a dry-fly or nymph tackle. Our experienced guides will provide you with the local knowledge for the angling experience of a lifetime. 'Catch and release' is the practice, however there are always great photo opportunities. Allow a full
day (8 hours).
