Tongariro River Fly Fishing - A Day With A Guide

The world famous Tongariro River offers unforgettable fly fishing year round. In winter we have the renown spawning runs of both Rainbow and Brown Trout, while summer offers wilderness fishing in the beautiful upper reaches, and dry-fly sight-fishing to monster Browns lower down.

Many clients who only have a day while passing through Taupo or Turangi want to fish the Tongariro, often to tick it off their bucket-list. Other clients, such as some from Australia, want a day with a guide to learn or fine-tune, and then they plan to fish more days on their own.

Our guides have over 70 years combined experience fly fishing up and down the Tongariro River in all seasons. We can make the most of your limited time employing a range of techniques based on the conditions, from traditional Kiwi nymphing and wetlining, to Skagit, Czech-nymphing and Cicada-droppers.

Many clients comment that not only did they love the trout they caught, but also the new techniques learnt as well.

If you only have a day to fish, we will help you make the most of it. We provide all gear, transport and a hearty packed lunch from a local catering company. Please Contact Us to discuss your plans.
