Clear, fast rivers run throughout the volcanic Lake Taupo region, making the area an internationally-renowned trout fishery.
Try your luck at catching trophy-sized rainbow and brown trout either in Lake Taupo itself or in the surrounding rivers and streams. During the winter months huge numbers of large trout enter all the rivers and make their way upstream to spawn. This is premier fishing time: the trout entering the rivers are in prime condition and trophy-size specimen are regularly caught. In summer, exciting fishing can be found in the shallows of the lake.
