Trout Fishing in Great Lake Taupo
Lake Taupo and the rivers in the Great Lake Taupo region are a trout fishing mecca. The town of Turangi is known as the 'Trout Fishing Capital of New Zealand' and is a great place to base yourself to experience the best that New Zealand trout and fly fishing has to offer.
