“Experience unique fly fishing with spectacular scenery”. M20985 is the only fishing lodge on the West Coast. The area surrounding the lodge offers some of New Zealand’s finest fly-fishing with a large number of spectacular and remote rivers, bush clad lakes and mysterious spring creeks to choose from.
West Coast fishing offers predominantly a wild brown trout population with large sea run fish in the months of October November and December. The large sea run trout follow the whitebait up the river during these early months.
The resident M20985 guides utilise a variety of fishing access methods from 4WD vehicles, boats for lake fishing and helicopters which land right on the doorstep of the lodge. If you want to walk 5 minutes or 5 kilometres we can take you there.
