Rotorua Fishing guidelines

For the angler, the lakes and rivers in Rotorua teem with trophy-sized trout that provides sport and thrills. As trout cannot be bought or sold commercially, the only way to sample it is to catch it yourself, but that's part of the fun - in fact you are likely to find Rotorua is the easiest place in New Zealand to hook a trout. We can recommend two Professional Guides (who will provide all the gear plus Fishing Licence)and are able to reveal the best spots in the area.

Here in Rotorua, you'll delight in our bounty of lakes, rivers and crystal springs for trout fishing.

Trout fishing near Rotorua

Be as formal or relaxed, as you like. The more energetic can play tennis on the championship-sized court, with rackets and balls supplied.

There are many walks around the area, a specialty being Hamurana Springs where 450,000,000 litres of water come out of the ground per hour. Trout, ducks and swans can be seen in the stream.

In winter you can rest beside the open fire with a book or quiet music. Spacious landscaped gardens, with roses, rhododendrons, camellias, and many native trees are a feature of Panorama. Native birds such as tuis and blue herons are frequently heard and seen on the property.


Aptly named, Panorama is your ideal base to stay near Rotorua’s many attractions. The large picture windows offer wide uninterrupted views of Lake Rotorua & Mokoia Island. The house is centrally heated, screened and wheelchair accessible. Offering luxury accommodation and warm hospitality, Panorama is the perfect retreat where you can relax, unwind and feel at home away from home. Feel the peace and tranquillity as you relax under the stars in the outdoor heated massage spa pool, or you may prefer an energetic game of tennis or walk through a redwood forest to Hamurana Springs, where one million gallons of water comes out per hour. Come home after a busy day and stretch out on the extra large beds in Panorama’s peaceful surrounds for a perfect nights sleep. Only 15min from Rotorua, away from sulphur smells, smokefree inside, and plenty of off street parking. Massages and facials can be arranged. Helicopter landing is available.

Other Information

You can expect friendly, relaxed hospitality from your hosts, Chris and Dave, who enjoy entertaining and will ensure your stay with them is a memorable one.

Your friendly hosts, Dave a retired sheep and beef farmer and Chris a retired Registered Nurse, working mainly with Palliative Care patients, have lived in Rotorua for over 13 years. They posses a wealth of knowledge about activities in the district and would be more than happy to help you plan your days with them.

Prior to moving to Rotorua, they both lived on a farm in the Waitomo district, where they hosted farmstay visitors and owned Lost World Tourist attraction.

They really enjoy communicating with people and finding out about the rest of the world. Because of this when they retired they knew they wanted to manage a bed and breakfast accommodation.

Dave enjoyed many years of hunting and fishing and says the peace and beauty that the surrounding lakes offer, is just exquisite. We would be happy to recommend a fishing guide who will guarantee you catch a trout on the lake. As New Zealand does not allow the sale of trout, this will be your only chance of tasting this delicacy. Dave is interested in all sports and used to play cricket, golf and football. There are 5 golf courses within 20 min drive from here and golf clubs are available from us.

Chris’s passions include quilting, card making, scrap-booking and cooking and if you are lucky she would be happy to prepare a meal for you on request. Chris was married to an Australian and lived in Queensland for over 21 years. Her three children still reside over there with her 7 grandchildren.

Dave has 3 children still living in New Zealand and two have moved over to Australia for work. They have produced 10 grand children so in total, Chris and Dave have 17 grandchildren. Luckily they don’t all arrive home at the same time.
