Lake Tarawera is renowned for its trophy sized Rainbow Trout – some of which are known to be up to seven kilograms. You will love the excitement of catching these huge fish yourself and with Clearwater Cruises you can enjoy it in the best possible way. With professional guides and local knowledge, we can provide a range of vessels to suit all budgets.
Suitable for local and international guests, corporate groups and fishing enthusiasts, we provide all the fishing equipment required and can use a number of methods depending on the time of year including trolling, jigging, harling and fly-fishing. Our experienced guide will show you how.
Catch & Cook
Once landed, your trout can be enjoyed sashimi style accompanied by wasabi and soy sauce, barbequed with Clearwater’s delicious secret recipe or best of all smoked. We can also simply release your trout back into the wild after taking a photo as proof of your expertise.
For special occasions (if time allows) we can bake your trout in the thermal sands at Hot Water Beach while you soak in the natural hot pools.
Clearwater Cruises trout fishing trips cater for all abilities, from beginners to the most dedicated angler.
