The guides utilise a variety of fishing access methods from 4WD vehicles, boats for lake fishing and helicopters. If you want to walk 5 minutes or 5 kilometres we can take you there. Beautiful sea run Salmon can also be caught in local rivers in February and March with an average size of 8-15 pounds.
The Fishing style: Virtually all your fish will be stalked and sighted before you begin to cast. Most fish will be quite visible and within a range of 30-40 ft. You will fish with mostly barbless hooks and all fish will be returned to the river (after photo’s have been taken) as we have a 'catch and release' policy to ensure the future of these fisheries.
Heli-Fishing: The lodge has it’s own heli-pad and heli-fishing on the West Coast is one of the experiences of a lifetime. This is an incredible landscape of high mountains, dense forests and a wide variety of rivers and streams to choose from.
Heli-fishing gives you access to remote fishing locations where the scenery alone is world class. So give this some thought when organizing your itinerary. Prices vary so let us know what you would like to experience with our Heli-fishing options and we’ll send you a quote.
