Chris Jolly Outdoors - Private Fishing Charters


Fish for Trout with the experts. Chris Jolly Outdoors have been taking clients fishing on Lake Taupo for more than 30 years. We have 4 launches to choose from and can cater for groups up to 140 people - all our fishing trips are private charters.

Lake Taupo, situated in the middle of the North Island of New Zealand, offers excellent trout fishing all year round. Most fishing takes the form of trolling either lures or flies. We use a combination of downriggers, harling and trolling on board - depending on the time of day, weather and client time restraints. All our charter boats come equipped with galley, full bar facilities, fishing gear, music systems, flush toilets, lounge style cabins and safety equipment. All catering is supplied by our in-house chef and there are a variety of menus to choose from - from canapes to three course dinners. Any trout caught can be barbequed onboard or prepared sashimi style for you to enjoy.
