From Taupo you can be casting for wild New Zealand trout in a quality backcountry river or stream on a day trip or overnight heli fly in fishing trip.

From Taupo we can access rivers such as the Mohaka, Waiau, Ngaruroro and the Rangitikei.

Trips are most suited to experienced anglers with a limited number of options for novices.

The best months are from November to March.  November and December offer the best catch rate for fishing with dry fly and nymph. After Christmas fish can get tougher to catch but a true test of an anglers ability.  Most fishing is for hard fighting sighted trout.
