Lake Mapourika is one of the South Island’s most scenic fishing destinations. Fish for brown trout and salmon, on our fully covered tour boat.



Lake Mapourika’s calm reflective waters are home to many fish such as brown trout and salmon.

Fishing techniques used: spinning, trolling and harling. All fishing equipment is provided and no experience is necessary. Private and shared charter options are available. Private charters include a BBQ facility, great for a family or group of friends. Explore the lake further with any of our kayak tours or scenic boat cruises and guided walks on Lake Mapourika.
