There is no question that New Zealand is a dream destination for outdoor and freshwater fly fishing enthusiasts. Thick forests cover spectacular mountains that hug some of the world’s most magnificent rivers, and within those rivers are some of the most prized trophy trout on the globe. For visitors of Lake Rotoroa Lodge, New Zealand fly fishing dreams are within a stone’s throw, and anglers enjoy deluxe accommodations.
Out of Murchison on New Zealand’s South Island is Lake Rotoroa Lodge. Offering angling opportunities within the prized the Nelson Lakes National Park, Lake Rotoroa Lodge makes perhaps the world’s best mountain brown trout fly fishing. A day’s fishing might take place at any of 22 different nearby rivers, and more rivers are accessible from the lodge by helicopter.
The location, character, and accessibility to world-class adventures have resulted in great praise for Lake Rotoroa Lodge. As the lodge notes, “In 2000 Lake Rotoroa Lodge earned a great accolade when National Geographic Adventure magazine named it as one of the twenty-five greatest adventure destinations in the world.”
