Huka Lodge was established in the 1920s as a simple fishing lodge and to this day, the size and fighting spirit of Taupo’s famous Rainbow and Brown trout continues to draw anglers to the property. Only a 25-minute drive from Huka Lodge, the Tongariro River is a considerable attraction to keen fishermen the world over. Anglers come to the Tongariro to fish for spawning trout which run up the river from the lake over the colder winter months, both Rainbow and Brown trout frequent these waters and disappointments are rare. Your fishing guide will pick you up in a four-wheel drive vehicle from the Lodge and return you again. They will provide top quality rods, reels, waders and flys.
