Queen­stown Fish­ing of­fers ‘one-of-a-kind’ fish­ing charters and guided fly fish­ing experiences. Spe­cial­is­ing in fly fish­ing, lake trolling, drift fly fish­ing, spin­ning and jig­ging, Queen­stown Fish­ing can take you to the spec­tac­u­lar alpine lakes Wakatipu, Wanaka and Hawea, as well as the world-renowned rivers of the South­ern Lakes re­gion. Stalk­ing trout and cast­ing a large dry fly with a nymph drop­per over sighted fish will get you hooked. Among many of the great places to fish is the Mataura River, world fa­mous for its mayfly hatches and spin­ner falls. The south of the South Is­land is an ab­so­lute mecca for trout fish­ing. A day out with Queen­stown Fish­ing on the lake op­tions are on your side. Head out on Lake Wakatipu for a spin fish­ing and trolling ex­pe­ri­ence to fish around the mouth of some of the lake’s spec­tac­u­lar rivers. Start your day out from Queen­stown (ad­ven­ture cap­i­tal of the world!) on Nikita or choose Glenorchy (Lord of the Rings country) on Kath­leen II. Char­ter op­tions range from 3hrs to a full day and you have the op­tion to share your day with a mixed group of other

keen fish­er­man or have the boat to your­selves on a pri­vate char­ter: The choice is yours. Have a blast at your next cor­po­rate fish­ing event or mem­o­rable fam­ily out­ing. Try some su­per fresh sashimi which we pre­pare for you on the boat with the very fish you catch! On a pri­vate char­ter there is also a bar­be­cue avail­able for use on board. If fly fish­ing is on the menu, then head over to one of the many rivers and alpine streams that the South­ern Lakes re­gion has on of­fer. Choose from a walk and wade ex­pe­ri­ence or opt for our im­ported drift boat if you pre­fer the laid back ap­proach where you can sight and stalk brown and rain­bow trout. Both fly fish­ing experiences in­clude pickup and drop off from your ac­com­mo­da­tion. Heli fish­ing

com­bos and hunt­ing op­tions are also avail­able on re­quest. You will be picked up via cour­tesy 4WD, then es­corted by a reg­is­tered pro­fes­sional fish­ing guide onto lo­ca­tion for some epic scenery, top notch fish­ing and some great laughs. Your day is sure to sat­isfy. Whether spin or fly fish­ing, sea­soned an­glers or first time fish­ers can reel in an in­cred­i­ble day of learn­ing from Queen­stown’s best fish­ing team. With 80+ years of com­bined ex­pe­ri­ence, we can teach you how to fly fish, the ba­sics of trolling, how to spin for fish, and how to use fish­ing gear for the catch of the day. Closely read­ing the lake and river hotspots, our guides have a sixth sense when it comes to track­ing wild trout and salmon

You will be guided by those who truly know this fish­ing par­adise. Fish­ing guide and skip­per Trevor Cruick­shank has over 50 years fish­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in Queen­stown, the South Is­land and Otago’s rivers and lakes. Trevor is also a reg­is­tered mem­ber of the New Zealand Pro­fes­sional Fish­ing Guides As­so­ci­a­tion (NZPFGA). Team­ing up with Trevor is Si­mon Cruick­shank, who has a strong pas­sion for all types of fish­ing and hunt­ing and loves noth­ing more than to be out on the water. If he is not out on a char­ter then you will prob­a­bly find him up a river or on the coast fish­ing. He has over 30 years fish­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in and around the South­land and Otago re­gions.

At Queen­stown Fish­ing, we are ex­tremely pas­sion­ate about our sport. When we are not on char­ter and guid­ing for a living you will still find us fish­ing, whether it’s for re­lax­ation, at com­pe­ti­tions or chas­ing the never end­ing bucket list of fish. What­ever the rea­son, at Queen­stown Fish­ing we were born to fish!
