Tongariro Lodge’s guiding operation is one of New Zealand’s most experienced fly-fishing outfitters. The knowledge, experience and expertise of the lodge’s guides is unequaled.

Founded by legendary angler and guide Tony Hayes in 1982 Tongariro Lodge Guides have catered for the world’s who’s who of fly-fishing.

Our guides provide access to over 40 rivers and 3 Lakes. They offer the most diverse range of rainbow and brown trout fly fishing opportunities in New Zealand.

The name New Zealand raises the pulse of trout fishermen and women the world over, and wild rainbow and brown trout have thrived better in the Lake Taupo system than anywhere else in this country. Trophy trout over 10lbs are landed by Tongariro Lodge guests each year, with an overall average of around 4 lbs.
