Trout Fishing in New Zealand
We have mainly Brown Trout in this part of the world, with a few of our streams and rivers also holding Rainbow Trout.

About Geoff  Stewart Guide Services, fishing and hunting guide service.
I have been fly fishing for trout in this part of the South Island of New Zealand for over 20 years, guiding fly fishermen and women for the last 12 years.

I have also spent a few northern summers guiding in Southwest Alaska.  As well as giving me a lot of great memories, this has given me considerable experience to help make your time here the trip of a lifetime.

Our fishing season starts on the 1st of October and runs to the end of
May. There are, however, some rivers and lakes which are open all year round.

Hunting in New Zealand
In this part of New Zealand we also have some fantastic bird hunting. 
We have large populations of Mallard and Paradise duck, Canada Goose and also Californian Quail.  
The hunting seasons are May-July for duck, June-August for Quail and
most of the year for Geese. Combine the long season with up to 20 birds per day bag limits, and you'll have a great time.  See my Hunting page for more information.

Location (See map below)
I am based in the town of Winton which is about 20 minutes drive north of the city of Invercargill.
When you fly into New Zealand you will arrive at either Auckland or Christchurch international airport.  Both of our domestic airlines (Air New Zealand and Qantas New Zealand) have 3-4 flights per day into Invercargill.

There are rental cars available at the airport or in the city, or alternately I can meet you at the airport.
There is accommodation available, from large hotels/motels in Invercargill city, to smaller hotels, guest houses and Farmstay accommodation in the outlying areas.    All of  these are only a few minutes drive from the riverside, and come highly recommended.
I can arrange accommodation for you if required.

Fishing and hunting in N.Z. can take you into rugged or isolated terrain. While experienced guiding and assistance will be provided where possible, Geoff Stewart Guide Services accepts no liability for injuries or other medical conditions, losses or claims of any kind or nature.
