Fly fishing for rainbow and brown trout is available year round throughout much of Canterbury, with each new season starting October 1st. However, the favoured high country fly fishing season runs from the first weekend in November till the end of April. Small lake and streams that eventually join the larger river systems are snow fed from the high mountains, which run the length of the South Island. These lakes and streams are known to captivate the hearts of anglers from the world over.

Access to the wide variety of fishing trip options may be by jet boat, helicopter, 4WD or on foot. Sight fishing for trout is definitely the most popular option, fishermen come to hunt a quarry, this is typically small stream fly fishing in the magnificent high country near the Southern Alps. Seeing, catching and releasing wild New Zealand trout is some of the most attractive and cost effective fishing available. Fly fishing for the wily brown or bold rainbow trout is a true nature tour and a test for even the most experienced of fly fishers.
