This is one of the most spectacular places for Trout fishing in the world. It makes a great place for flyfishing and because of the year round cold water, it will fit into anybody's busy schedule.

Trout fishing in Taupo

Lake Taupo, on New Zealand’s North Island is surrounded by a network of streams inhabited by healthy populations of Rainbow and Brown Trout. Once they get into the lake trout can get really big, so this is a trophy fly fisherman’s paradise. Part of the Tongariro National Park, which makes for a spectacular mountainous backdrop, people wanting to fish in the Taupo region can wade and fly in streams or rivers, charter a fishing boat on the lake or venture onto stretches of river only accessible by raft.
