The Taupo Trout Fishery provides for incredible river and lake fishing, attracting anglers from all around the world seeking to test their skills against its wild rainbow and brown trout.

This year, a new online licensing system will make it easier than ever to get out on the water.

Purchase a season licence before 31 August 2015 and you’ll automatically be in to win either a pair of Simms G3 Waders and boots in your size, or a Lowrance elite-5x colour fish finder.
