Fishing Trips, Info, Fees & Services

Alan Campbell can help you find the right fishing holes to hook a large trout.
Alan your guide with another satisfied client.

Our fishing season begins on the first Saturday in November and continues through until the end of April (for fishing in rivers) while many lakes and the canals remain open throughout the year.

There are over 30 streams and lakes all within 1 hour's drive from Twizel including the Tekapo and Ahuriri rivers. Nearly all waters contain the omnipresent brown trout and many also have a good population of rainbows.

Most trout weigh between 1.5kg and 2kg but there are much larger fish present if you know where to find them and I have access to some of those "special places"!

I believe my fishing tours speak for themselves with over 50% of my 500+ clients having returned more than once in my 22+ seasons as a guide.

Best Times for Fishing Trips in New Zealand

November / December

This time of year is always good for fishing in the South Island as the trout are hungry and numerous. The weather can be changeable, so make sure you have a hat that will stay on your head if the nor'west wind blows!

January / February / March

This is the peak of the dry fly season and generally the weather is more stable.


Lovely warm afternoons, following cool nights, trigger end of season hatches on select waters and I can help you find these.
