Lake Tekapo is located in the very middle of the South Island of New Zealand. There is a series of large lakes up in this renowned district known as the Mackenzie High County and the rivers that flow up in and around these stunning alpine catchments offer all sorts of trout fly fishing gems. I have spent a large part of my early fishing day’s exploring and fishing most of these waters and the variety of water types up in this fisherman’s paradises really makes this location one of the very best. So you take the seemingly endless amount of rivers, streams, small mountain creeks, spring creeks, high mountain tarns and add to this New Zealand’s renowned wild big browns and Rainbow trout all surrounded by pictures snow-capped mountain ranges and you will find yourself the perfect fly fishing setting you could imagine.
