Overview

Step aboard a Lake Mapourika Fishing Charter from Franz Josef on New Zealand's West Coast, a trip that will stay with you in your memory for a long time! With a large cabin area, the Hannah-k can comfortably seat many passengers inside while up to four fishermen can hang out on the back deck.

All throughout the trip, the skipper offers not only fishing expertise but also onboard commentary that will engage even the non-fishers who would find the scenery equally compelling. The boat’s BYO license also allows for provisions of hot and cold beverages you can enjoy on the way. 

For a small extra cost, you can take advantage of an optional BBQ facility on the boat. 

  • Trout: Brown Trout can be caught year-round.
  • Salmon: Lake Mapourika holds many resident and Sea-run Quinnat salmon.

Just under 6000 Quinnat salmon were released in 2015, and are now starting to reach the legal size!

Fishing techniques will include a mixture of trolling, harling and spinning. Different techniques will be used depending on the season, and the target species.

All fishing equipment and full instruction provided, no previous fishing experience is required.
