Fishing

New Zealand is one of the world's great fishing countries and Fiordland showcases some of the best Trout fishing the country has to offer.

With pristine waters and magnificent backdrops it’s not hard to see why anglers come from all over the world to experience the world class fishing of New Zealand. Fiordland, well-stocked with Rainbow and Brown Trout, is a fisherman's paradise. 

Both Lake Manapouri and Lake Te Anau have ample fishing locations with access to beautiful streams and rivers, and offers anglers boat trolling, stream mouth, and shore fishing opportunities.

Fishing in New Zealand doesn’t get more spectacular than the Waiau River, which connects Lake Manapouri and Lake Te Anau. Cabot Lodge provides direct access to the Waiau River via a private jetty, where guests can enjoy the serenity, with the only sound the flowing water and winding reel. 

Guests can also take private guided tours to more remote areas of Fiordland, even fishing in the Lord of the Rings filming locations. Cabot Lodge works with knowledgeable local guides who can take guests to the best hideaways and share their insights into this beautiful area.
