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!

Awesome time out last weekend with Ryan on Church – the bite was slow but still some memorable fish put on the boat. A fantastic way to show some of our overseas mates how beautiful the Coromandel is.
Cheers! Brendan

Awesome time out

It’s just like fishing with mates!
We have been with Owen, chase and Ryan all extremely great skippers. Nothing is to much trouble!
We will be back again! Paul

The best fishing charter I have ever been on!

Captain Kit really knows his stuff, went out with a mate targeting big game and Kingies on live baits, a thoughtfully enjoyable day out with a great captain on a great boat.
Plus Russell itself is really fantastic spot – great beach over the hill.
Would recommend to all.

Northlands best fishing charter!

We had a fabulous day out fishing with Epic Adventures and Captain Kit. He was really committed to helping us catch our first Kingis. All five on the boat including the women caught fish and it was just such an amazing and positive experience for us all. If you want to catch Kingis we can highly recommend Epic Adventures and Captain Kit. Maree
