Fishing

It is possible to fish in Lakes Wanaka and Hawea all year round but river fishing is season is from November 1 - May 30 only. We tailor fishing trips to suit clients' requirements and abilities. Try your hand at fly-fishing in the Wilkin and Young rivers - an abundant source of brown and rainbow trout. A licence is required for lake and river fishing. We can also arrange a deep-sea fishing charter on the West Coast - within an hour's drive of Makarora.

Hunting

We can arrange guided hunting trips in our own hunting area containing trophy red stags and Himalayan tahr. We tailor hunting trips to clients' requirements and can organise everything from hiring guides and equipment to taking care of the trophy head and preparing meat. The hunting season runs from March to August. Special permits are required for game bird hunting only. Contact us for more information about hunting packages.
