The secret to maximising your fishing experience is to use an experienced fly fishing guide. Due in part to the clarity of the water, the “canniness” of our brown trout and the fact that these monster brown trout sparsely populate our rivers, we absolutely recommend you use the services of one of our highly experienced fishing guides.
At Owen River Lodge, we are very proud of our team of fishing guides, we think they're the best team of fishing guides ever assembled in New Zealand. All our fishing guides are professional full time fishing guides. They all have over 10 years experience (most have over 20 years’ experience) as fishing guides and they are all members of the NZPFGA – New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association.
