Fishing & Hunting Seasons, NZ

Due to the seasonal nature of some activites please refer to this calendar when planning the timing of your trip. Trout fishing and duck shooting have restricted seasons. The seasons vary between districts, so please contact us for dates in the area you wish to hunt or fish. If you are traveling from abroad you may want to check for any seasonal cheap flights to New Zealand so you can save on your flight expenses and spend more on buying fish baits and other fishing tools for your fishing experience.

Most rivers, stream and lakes are available to fish in New Zealand. To find these great fishing spots may require access across private property. Steve's Adventure Tours can organise this for you so you may access great fishing locations during the season.
