While New Zealand is renowned in the angling world for its legendary trout, salmon on the South Island seem to receive far less attention. While some of the western rivers are home to seasonal runs of Pacific salmon, fishing Lake Wakatipu is not as well-known as a salmon destination. Many people are just not aware that you can take advantage of plentiful numbers of land-locked salmon living in Lake Wakatipu, adjacent to the popular tourist destination of Queenstown. When you book a chartered fishing tour from Queenstown Fishing, you will have the best chance of catching some of these silver-sided beauties for yourself.
Queenstown Fishing provides guided tours and fishing charters on Lake Wakatipu, a convenient destination for tourists worldwide. Our family-run business has over 80 years’ combined experience fishing Lake Wakatipu, and we know where to find salmon where others have come up empty-handed. We also provide fishing charters for Lake Wanaka and Hawea, for those who like to go a bit further off the beaten path in their search for wild trout and salmon.
At Queenstown Fishing, we offer far more than your typical tour group operation. We are happy to accommodate corporate outings and provide tailored group experiences for a variety of occasions. Some of our many possible extras and add-ons include concierge and transport services from the Hilton Queenstown Resort and BBQ lunches for group charters.
