About

The Waiau River is a dream come true for keen anglers. Largely inaccessible on foot, it is bordered by the majestic wilderness of Fiordland National Park. Famous for its outstanding Mayfly hatches & thrilling evening rises, high numbers of aggressive Rainbow and Brown trout thrive in its rainforest-clear water.

There's no better way to navigate this fishing paradise than with passionate angler and expert local guide Mark Wallace. A member of the NZ Professional Trout Fishing Guide Assn, Mark is the ultimate person to take you on an epic fly-fishing, drift or spin adventure.
