An unforgettable fishing adventure on Fiordland’s extraordinary Waiau River, stunning landscapes and alpine landings by helicopter.
From fly to spin, from beginner to experienced, this is the ultimate trout fishing day trip in Fiordland – departing Te Anau.
Start your day by sampling the Fiordland National Park by air with a 30 minute scenic flight. Departing the Te Anau township by air, get a stunning view of Lake Te Anau and the surrounding areas.
Land on a remote mountain top, enjoy commanding views of Lakes Te Anau, Manapouri and the Kepler Track landing right at the Waiau River to meet your awaiting private guide and boat.
Teeming with Brown and Rainbow Trout and bordering Fiordland National Park, the Waiau combines low fishing pressure with extraordinary Mayfly hatches for a fly fishing experience that’s truly world class yet often underrated.
