Whether it’s a guided tour or trying your luck on your own Southern Wild can set you up with everything you need. Our pristine lakes and rivers have plentiful supplies of rainbow trout, brown trout and salmon. For the more adventurous there’s deep sea fishing opportunities within a two hour drive from Wanaka. We stock all the leading brands of gear; rods, reels, downriggers, vests and tackle boxes. We also have the materials for fly tying (hooks, feathers, etc… ) plus a huge selection of flies, lures and soft bait.
If you are only here for a short period you can hire the gear for a minimum period of 24 hrs. You can purchase a fishing licence for one, two, three or four days; or a full season licence or the shorter winter season licence.
If you are heading out to the backcountry don’t forget to hire our Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) to ensure your safety and peace of mind.
