TroutFishingNZ : Trout Fishing Charters

Located in Turangi at the southern end of lake Taupo, we normally launch at Tokaanu boat ramp.
We fish lake Taupo and the surrounding lakes which offer fantastic trout fishing, no experience necessary and great time can be had by all. Our boat is fully licenced by Maritime NZ to carry four adult passengers, we also carry extra life jackets for children.
We take you fly fishing, harling, trolling or jigging depending what is working well at the time.

Lake Taupo is New Zealand’s largest lake with rainbow trout averaging 3-4 pound and brown trout averaging 6-8 pound, we fish the Southern end (Turangi), fly fishing the drop offs or jigging and trolling depending on the time of year. Open all 12 months of the year.
We also do specialist fly fishing trips on Lake Otamangakau and Rotoaira.

Your fishing guide:
Hello I am Michael Rowntree and I have been professionally guiding trout fishers on the North Island’s many lakes, rivers and streams since 1995.
I grew up in Turangi on the banks of the mighty Tongariro river and started fly fishing when I was seven years old, it is not only my passion but a way of life.

So whether it is fishing on the lakes or sight fishing on a small stream to awesome rainbow or brown trout, I will make sure you have the most enjoyable trip of a life time.

Sports spin fishing for trout and saltwater species is also available at certain times of the year.
