Fishing Charters

A guided fishing trip is a classic New Zealand experience you don’t want to miss on your visit to Wanaka. Sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery while the anticipation of landing the big fish grows. Lake Wanaka is the perfect location to enjoy the great outdoors while trying your luck with some of the best fishing in the South Island.

Lake Wanaka has an abundant fish population of Quinnat Salmon, Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout. These are the species we will target using the gear provided, including rods, reels, tackle and bait.



Patience is the key and what better place to relax and wait than in Wanaka. Our guides live, breathe and sleep fishing so you can be assured you’re in great hands. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro our team will help to make your Wanaka trip all that more memorable; sharing our local knowledge gained from a lifetime of fishing. We know the best spots and best techniques for different lake conditions and times of the day.

We have differing trip length options to suit your needs.

2 hour trip

Departing from the Log Cabin on the Wanaka foreshore your guide will take you to one of our popular spots. Here the fishing and excitement starts, the lines enter the water ready for that sudden strike as you prepare for the fight of your life. Once the fish are on board you have the option to keep your catch or release them back into the wild for another day.

3 hour trip

Again departing from the Log Cabin on the Wanaka foreshore you guide will take you to his choice of spot where the fishing will start. The difference here is that once your fish is on board your fish will be filleted and cooked on board, you’ll never taste fresher fish!  


Whether you’re a total beginner or the complete angler this is your chance to soak up the scenery, breathe deeply in the fresh air and enjoy the thrill of the catch.
