Franz Josef Wilderness Tours - Fishing Tours

Lake Mapourika is one of the South Island’s most scenic fishing destinations. The lake holds good stocks of brown trout and wild salmon (including sea run). There’s a fishing trip to keep everyone entertained, from novice to experienced anglers.



Lake Mapourika’s calm reflective waters are home to many fish such as brown trout and salmon. Experience the beauty of Lake Mapourika while trolling silently past 900 year old kahikatea trees and native birdsong while you wait for a nibble on the line. Fishing techniques used: spinning, trolling and harling. The boat features a down rigger on the back to assist in deep salmon fishing. All fishing equipment is provided and no experience is necessary. Fish, Cruise & BBQ Tour: What’s better than a classic kiwi BBQ? Spend 3 hours on the water with us and your mates. Relax with and unwind as you watch the fishing lines, with a cold drink and a BBQ. I can’t think of a better was to spend your day in Glacier Country.
