This very scenic district is the gateway to many remote rivers, most of which require heli charters to access. There are a small number of streams accessible by four wheel drive around Lake Wanaka but for the best part we recommend heli options as this will get you to better waters. Good river and weather forecast are a must as the weather can change very quickly so we highly advise using a professional guide.
As with all fly fishing locations in New Zealand we highly recommend using a professional fly fishing guide. Professional registered fishing guides all hold valid department of conservation concessions and insurances.
