Try New Zealand trout fishing in the Tongariro River.
Our Turangi motel sits on the banks of the Tongariro River, only 30 metres from the world famous Bridge Pool. The Tongariro River is one of the top fly-fishing rivers in New Zealand, where you can catch both rainbow and brown trout all year ‘round.
As well as the Tongariro there is the Tauranga-Taupo, the Hinemaiaia and Waitahanui Streams – just a short drive from your Tongariro accommodation. On the Northern side of Turangi and to the Western side you have the Omori, Kuratau and Whareroa streams. To the south there is Lake Rotoaira and the trophy trout Lake Otamangakau, where many 10 pound trout have been landed.
If you wish to get away from the crowds, the rivers that flow from the surrounding mountains boast world-class NZ fly-fishing with crystal clear waters. We recommend the Wanganui, Whakapapa, Mangawhero, Ongarue Rivers, but there are plenty more!
Book your Turangi accommodation with us – with cosy accommodation , a New Zealand restaurant and so many attractions to choose from, you won’t find a better spot for your next New Zealand fishing holiday.
