The North Island of New Zealand and Taupo specifically provides some of the most spectacular fly fishing in the world.

Chris Jolly Outdoors’ specialist fly fishing guides have the local knowledge and expertise to show the experienced angler how and where to fulfill their dreams of catching a Rainbow or Brown Trout. Whether you’re a novice or long-time fishermen you’re assured of an enjoyable Taupo fly fishing experience.

A unique and iconic experience to New Zealand, the Taupo region and Huka Lodge itself.

Fly fishing is an opportunity to get into some of New Zealand’s backcountry and explore the uniqueness of the rivers and streams and really learn about a process and a sport that for the most of us is almost a form of meditation at times.

Hire a charter boat for a private fishing experience

Lake Taupo is well known for its trophy trouts and you don’t need to own a boat to experience lake fishing at its finest. We have several charter boats for hire, fully equipped with fishing gear and guides if needed.

We cater to expert anglers as well as total beginners (you don’t need to know anything about boats or fishing). Fishing is truly a must do experience when in Lake Taupo so come on out with us either on a boat or on the river. Trout can’t be bought at restaurants so the only way to taste trout is to catch it yourself!

My wife and I just got into fishing and was wanting to learn more about the art of fly fishing. Our guide was very patient with us and made our learning easy, fun and enjoyable. We had a great time on the river and even caught a trout each!

Being keen anglers from America, we wanted a guide who could take us to the best fishing spots and hidden gems that only a local guide could provide. We had an outstanding experience with Chris Jolly Outdoors on the Tongariro River. Highly recommend, especially if you don't know the area well.

We flew in by chopper to the backcountry rivers to try our hands at trophy size Browns and Rainbows. These Aussies were definitely not disappointed! We would highly recommend Chris Jolly Outdoors for their professional and outstanding guiding experience.
