    What to Expect
    Using his wealth of local knowledge, Mark Wallace and his team of top notch guides, will show you an extraordinary fly fishing experience on the mighty Waiau River which flows between Lake Te Anau and Manapouri. This is a must-do on any serious angler’s bucket list and a fishing experience you won’t find anywhere else.

    The Waiau River is truly one-of-a-kind. 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. 

    This is a great fit for anglers looking for an outstanding fly fishing adventure and it’s also a perfect river for those just getting to know fly fishing or trying it for the first time – our guides are friendly and patient providing essential tuition on the river.

    A larger waterway; our highly experienced guides break the Waiau down and fish it like a small river. We know the Waiau like the back of our hands, and trout here are anything but hook-shy! Dotted with islands, beaches and eddies that are impossible to reach on foot, we use custom-built boats to navigate to the river’s best fishing spots, sometimes fishing from the boat drift-style if the client wishes. Don’t be put off by the use of the boat, trout on the Waiau are forgiving and settle fast once the boat has moved through and these boats are by far the superior method of maneuvering around this river.  

    Join us for a morning or afternoon of fly fishing on the mighty Waiau. You’ll quickly see why anglers who have fished all over the world rave about their time spent fishing with us.

    Pre-booking is recommended Dec – Feb as availability is limited.
