Top Of The Lake Guiding - Fly Fishing

FLY FISHING

 
The Fly Fishing season for Top Of The Lake Guiding is between the months of October and May. The peak times in this season is during the months of Summer when there are large terrestrial hatches, this creates a paradise for Dry Fly Site Fishing.
 
We are privileged to have some of the worlds best Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout fisheries right here on our doorstep. A lot of these Trout live in pristine, crystal clear water giving the angler a chance to sight and have the opportunity to catch their fish of a lifetime.
 
The trips that we offer can accommodate any fitness level. You do not need to have previous knowledge or experience with Fly Fishing as we will cater to your own personal abilities and goals.
 
At Top Of The Lake Guiding we offer Single or Multi Day Trips. We can access the fishing locations via foot, 4wd vehicle or helicopter. Our Fly Fishing Trips allow us to travel to different regions within the South Island, depending on different weather conditions.
 
For overnight trips we offer a range of accommodation options; from a Luxury Homestead, Farm Cottage, Backcountry Hut or Wilderness Camp. This allows us to give you a customised experience and flexibility in price depending on what type of trip you wish to have with us.
 
Please see below the different packages we offer or you are welcome to get in touch with us for something more customised.
