Fishing Guides

All our guides have air-conditioned 4-wheel drive vehicles to pick you up from your accommodation and take you to that wilderness river or peaceful stream in comfort. In addition to the four main rivers, the Mataura, Oreti, Aparima and Waiau, we have access to a variety of other less commonly known waterways and spring creeks.

Southland is privileged to be one of the best fishing locations in New Zealand.  You can access 15 to 20 rivers and streams within one hour’s drive and more than 50 within 90 minutes – more rivers than you could fish in a lifetime!

Helicopter fly-outs are available (subject to weather conditions). We have some of the best fishing locations in New Zealand on our back doorstep.

Professionalism… “not just a word, a fact”
