The MacKenzie Area;
The Mackenzie area is
a vast inland basin, and has long been a fly fishing destination with an
abundance of trout in the clear waters of the region.
Two of the better
known rivers are the Tekapo and Ahuriri both within close proximity to Twizel.
The Tekapo can have large numbers of fish at times while the Ahuriri is the
jewel in the crown, a magnificent setting, superb water and the chance of trophy
fish, Alan's local knowledge is the secret to your success here.
Fly fishing in the
Twizel region can produce wonderful sport especially since rainbow trout are
present in most waters along with their brown trout counterparts. The numerous
man-made and natural lakes in the area serve as a nursery for thestreams
providing a renewal of stock as trout move up the rivers to spawn each season.
Having large lakes and smaller“lochs” add tothe variety of fishing available
to the angler and sock eye salmon are an added bonus in some waters.
