Booking  :
fish3If you are wishing to fish while you stay at the Motueka River Lodge, we recommend that you book well in advance to avoid disappointment. Anglers typically book with us six to nine months in advance to secure the space they would like and the skills of an experienced fishing guide.

In the months of January and February this is particularly important when the weather is the most settled and when the tourism numbers swell.   However,  fishing earlier in the season is often more exciting with the waters being less fished in the spring, allowing the trout time to rest and grow over the winter months.
