Trout & Fly

The world famous and highly regarded trout fishery of Rotorua is a necessary part of any serious trout fisherman’s travel itinerary to New Zealand.

Guide Julian Danby, Friend of Epic and member of the New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association can provide several fishing experiences to extend your Epic fishing experience while in New Zealand.

Options to ask us about include.

  • Rotorua Lake’s Trout Fishing – Jigging, trolling, harling, spinning.
    Featuring Jigging, a high tech and very effective method for targeting rainbow trout in the Rotorua Lakes
  • Backwater trout guiding
    Venture into the beautiful back country around Rotorua to cast fly<

  • Or, if you can’t get enough of the NZ kingfish how about trying Saltwater fly fishing for kingfish in the Bay of Plenty harbours. This has taken off as an effective way to chase kingfish in the shallow water of our harbours.

Keen to try you luck on a trout fishing experience. Book a day on the water with Epic and we can help arrange an Epic trout trip as well.

Saltwater fly fishing is relatively new to New Zealand. If you are an experienced fly fisher person and would like to experience the awesome power of a New Zealand Kingfish on a saltwater fly. Let us know. Book an Epic Adventures charter and we will help arrange your next challenge. Saltwater fly fishing for Kingfish!

Jigging is not new to Epic Adventures customers. How about Jigging for trout! Let us know you are interested when you book an Epic Adventures charter and we will arrange a trout jigging experience for you too!

Brilliant day out hooked up to rampaging big kings! Chase worked hard to find the fish and when he did it was a hook-up every drop on big, bad kings. Great charter – a must if you are into fishing!

Great work Chase

Sensational charter service. I would recommend to anyone wanting to chase big kingys and snapper.
All Skippers really put in 110 percent, and a special thank you to our skipper Owen, top effort..
