Nestled in the secluded Taharua Valley on New Zealand's spectacular North Island, Poronui boasts some of the world’s best wilderness experiences combined with genuine warm hospitality.
Poronui is an historic fly fishing lodge where you can fish for resident wild brown and rainbow trout on the 16,000 acre private ranch in pristine, clear waters. There are many other options close to Poronui accessed by 4WD or helicopter. To outdoor enthusiasts, Poronui is about the opportunity to explore a timeless private wilderness by foot, horse or mountain bike.
The ultimate fly fishing experience is being surrounded by spectacular scenery and casting a dry fly over a big, wild trout in a crystal clear stream and at Poronui you can usually experience that every day!
You can also enjoy fishing by private charter boat on Lake Taupo and a helicopter flight deep into the mountains will uncover some of the most legendary and challenging fly fishing in the world. These are trophy waters where huge trout cautiously cruise in deep, clear pools. The angling can be technically difficult – demanding stealth, knowledge of the current, and an accurate cast. But when all these factors combine, the reward is likely to be the catch of a lifetime.
Poronui fishing guides are all members of the New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association. They are consummate professionals – passionate about the outdoors, and share an intimate knowledge of the rivers and streams and where to find the best trout. They are patient, excellent tutors and fun to spend the day with.
