Boat Fishing at Glen Dene

Lakes Hawea & Wanaka are the ideal spot to spend a few days fresh water fishing. Fish stocks include brown and rainbow trout, and landlocked Quinnat salmon. Local fisheries cater equally for the serious fly fisher, the boat angler or the backcountry fisher. Our guides are available with vehicle support and we also have helicopter and houseboat and boat support available.

High mountains border these large lakes, with a number of tributaries providing some magical scenery, water runs from the glacier and High Mountain springs down through beech forest to the open pastoral land before entering the lakes offering a wonderful range of fishing environments.
