Omarama lies on the outer South Western boundaries of Canterbury and Mackenzie high country. This stunning location offers a good number of classical waters to explore and fish. The terrain in the lower to mid altitude consists of rolling hills covered with lush golden tussocks that are rich in insect life, and the waters that flow around these locations tend to hold higher trout numbers especially in the mid and lower regions.
Some of the more known rivers do receive a reasonable amount of anglers but there are remote high mountain streams that hold some large fish. This is when a professional fly fishing guide really shows his worth, with knowledge of these remote trout waters and optimum fishing conditions to put you in the right place at the right time.
As like all fly fishing locations in New Zealand we highly recommend using a New Zealand Professional fly fishing guide. Professional registered fishing guides New Zealand all hold valid department of conservation concessions and insurances.
