Reviews for Poronui
You just can't get any better than Poronui Lodge for NZ trout fishing! The lodge is situated on a huge station that extends for miles in all directions and is bordered by national parks that offer a multitude of trout fishing streams accessible by vehicle or helicopter. The fishing guides and lodge staff take excellent care of the guests with great guiding and instruction, beautifully prepared and delicious meals, and for those wishing to see the extensive property from the back of a horse, expert wrangling. No need goes unmet and every amenity top-drawer. This is a place that is a fly fisherman/woman's lifetime dream.

My family visited here in summer, and we had an experience that we will never forget. This was one of the highlights of our New Zealand trip for the whole family. The men took a helicopter to a private fly fishing reserve, while the ladies enjoyed a day of amazing horseback riding. The food was incredible, and the staff were wonderful.
This place is truly wonderful. It's like staying at some remote rich persons estate for a few days! The land is amazing and truly breathtaking. If you are in to hunting and fishing this is the place for you. Even if you are not there are still plenty of activities, horse back riding, foraging, walking. They have a cute little camp lodge or a house or the lodge itself to stay at. The staff are friendly accommodating and it really does feel like you are staying with friends.

My husband and I visited for 4 nights with 3 days of the most amazing fly fishing with the excellent guide Dave Wood! The accommodations were superb and the food fabulous! Top notch facility in a breathtaking vista. We caught Browns and Rainbows! Our guide paced us well for our abilities. Nice communal dinners after a day on the river. Highly recommend!

For many years I heard about the excellent trout fishing in New Zealand. The fishing at Poronui exceeded all my expectations. Despite some heavy, unseasonal rain my excellent guide, Duncan McDonald, was able to get me three days fishing on the many headwaters around Poronui. The waters were crystal clear - sight fishing with a dry fly for large wild brown and rainbow trout yielded fish ranging from 3-7lb! My partner enjoyed the many other activities offered by the lodge including guided walks and horse riding. Like many of the very best lodges and hotels, the team at Poronui - led by manager, Eve - were outstanding! Always a greeting, a smile and some offer to improve our stay. The lodge rooms, food and wine were top notch. One piece of advice - include an additional budget for helicopter flights to get to the most remote fishing. It's worth every penny!
