Fishing in Fiordland
Welcome to the home of unforgettable wilderness fishing experiences
This is the trout fishing angling dreams are made of. Beautiful backcountry wilderness, remote and stunning waterways and bountiful, healthy trout. Here in Fiordland, you can enjoy sight fishing in gin-clear water for mountain river bred Brown and Rainbow Trout.
We work with Fiordland Outdoors Co., a locally-owned and operated business operating in Te Anau whose hard-working guides pride themselves on trout fishing adventures to remember. The company specialises in tailor-made fishing trips and will make sure you get exactly what you’re looking for. Using a jet boat, water taxi or helicopter, expert guides take you into Fiordland National Park and its exceptional and unpressured fishing locations.
Why is Fiordland good for trout fishing?
Fiordland offers a winning combination for the keen angler. The scenery is beautiful and invigorating, but the real benefit to fishing in isolated locations is trout that are less wary. An ideal adventure to do before or after your trip to Milford Sound, and sure to please the seasoned angler, families wanting to have some fun or first-timers.
