There's so much to choose from in the region it's difficult to know what to arrange before you arrive - and you wouldn't want to miss out! From our location in the heart of the Motueka River Valley the whole Nelson Tasman region is accessible so let us design a very special day out for you either based on one of the packages below or we can put together something special together to suit guests' differing interests.
The Lodge has excellent relationships with several professional local fly fishing guides. The Lodge also has its own river frontage on the Motueka River. We can design a single day, or multi-day fishing experience for you whatever your level of expertise.
Our perfect location allows guests to experience gentle, clear, flowing rivers with easy access right from the property or if you are up to it, the more challenging treasures that lie hidden high in the back country only accessible by helicopter. With over 30 accessible rivers and streams in close proximity to the Motueka River Lodge, and many others by helicopter, our region offers abundant variety to suit every angler’s dreams – you may even land yourself a 10 pounder trophy trout.
The Lodge's position allows a wide choice of rivers from different catchment systems to be accessed. Our talented team of fly fishing guides pick the most appropriate fly fishing destination according to the angler’s ability, fitness level, time of year and pertinent local knowledge.
Please note though that the best guides in the region do get booked up in the season so it is advisable to book your fly fishing when you book your accommodation.
