Enjoy a Vacation in the Midst of Top Fishing Spots in New Zealand

New Zealand, also called ‘Kiwiland’, is a striking island vacation destination with many natural wonders and exoticas. It is divided into two parts—North Island and South Island. These two parts teem with beautiful mountains, rivers, lakes, and much more. Fishing is the chief activity enjoyed in these islands. Know them in toto one by one:


South Island


This island has amazing snow-topped mountains, broad plains, golden sand beach, beech forests, etc. Some of the best fishing spots on this island are the following:


Queenstown


Famous as the Adventure Capital of the World, it is all about white water rafting, skydiving, and bungee jumping. It is also famous for

fishing. Fishing guides are available there to take you for full-week expeditions or day-long excursions on foot or by helicopter.


Kaikoura


It accommodates a large amount of sea life and provides endless opportunities for fishing. It is an ideal place for you to feast your eyes on aquatic animals and indulge in fishing activities.


Lake Brunner


As the largest lake in the South Island, it is famous for brown trout that survive in its water. Lying at a distance of 31 km south of Greymouth, it is a bit further than most many popular attractions that attract tourists to the West Coast. Because of being popular for South Island Brown trout fishing, it remains crammed with tourists.


North Island


It is a must-see destination for fly fishing with colossal Lake Taupo, endless greenery, and a sufficient quantity of rainbow trout. So, North Island Rainbow trout fishing is a very popular activity here.


With large lakes, snow-capped volcanoes, and many flowing streams through fern-filled grottos, it is a fly fisherman’s paradise. As an adventurous person, you can access world-famous backcountry rivers through helicopter or hiking. The worth remembering thing is that very few places in the world grow such a large rainbow trout. It is just because of a temperate climate prevailing in this destination. This has given birth to a large number of brown trout and rainbow trout fish in this region. The months of October and April are the best times for fishing activities.
