Rotorua Trout Guide is now offering boat fishing in the 2017-2018 season with options to fly fish, jigging, trolling and harling on the beautiful lakes of the Rotorua District.

The purpose built Quintrex Hornet Trophy 5m is the perfect boat to experience the great fishing on the Rotorua Lakes. The combination of a high quality Lowrance fish finder and also a Minn Kota electric motor are great assets to the fishing platform that enable accurate drift and trolling speeds resulting in more fish caught.

We are fortunate to have so many lakes in the Rotorua District, all with good boat fishing. Central to the operation is Lake Rotorua, an excellent fishing lake holding high stocks of both brown and rainbow trout that can be caught in a variety of methods.  Lake Rotorua is one of New Zealand most prolific lakes. Trolling, harling and fly fishing are the preferred boat fishing methods on lake Rotorua.

Lake Rotoiti is joined to Lake Rotorua is connected to Lake Rotorua through the Ohau Channel at the northern end of the lake. Lake Rotoiti is dependent on fish and game hatchery released fish with stocking rates of 28,000 juvenile trout every year. With abundant food supply the fish grow rapidly and the fisherman can expect quality catches of rainbow trout. The preferred fishing methods on this lake are jigging and harling.

We also at times fish some of our other special lakes we have in the area including: Tarawera, Okataina, Rotoma, Rerewhakaaitu and Aniwhenua.

Please note: Boat Fishing will not be available until late 2017-early 2018.
