Trout

Taupo is a world-renowned fly-fishing destination. Rainbow and brown trout are the resident inhabitants, and they spawn by the hundreds of thousands in Taupo’s rivers every year.

Trout can’t be bought or sold commercially in New Zealand, which means you won’t find trout on the menu at your favourite Taupo restaurant. This prohibition is aimed at protecting the sustainability of the recreational trout fishery.

If you want to try the delicious taste of trout, you’ll need to catch it wild yourself. You can book a fishing charter where the skipper will prepare your fish onboard. It’s also possible to take your catch in to one of the local restaurants, where the chef can cook it for you – just call in advance and make a booking.
