Fiordland is renowned for the quality of its fly fishing. The crystal clear unpolluted waters are managed as a wild fishery, producing good stocks of large brown and rainbow trout.
Fiordland Guides specialize in upstream sight fishing and their multi-day trips provide anglers with a variety of water and scenery to enjoy each day. The water varies from small spring fed streams to moderate sized rivers. The mountains of Fiordland are clothed in rich rain forest and here true wilderness fishing is as good as it gets. During settled weather, the rivers run clear and large brown and rainbow trout can be seen cruising in deep pools. Away from the mountains and forest, the rivers flow across farm land with an ever changing landscape. Access along the river banks is somewhat easier in these areas than in the mountains and good stocks of both brown and rainbow trout abound.
