I've fished with Dion from Rotorua Sight-Fishing Adventures on two occasions now and it's been money well spent both times! His eyes are like trout radars, spotting anything and everything that moves in the streams and lakes. His knowledge of the local areas and how to fish them second to none. His relaxed attitude makes for a very enjoyable experience for you, losing a gear, which happens it some of those tight streams isn't an issue, he'll just tie another fly on and you're right back into it. If you want to experience some of the best trout fishing New Zealand has to offer Dion at Rotorua Sight-Fishing Adventures is the person to call! I'm looking for to doing it again this season!

Dion has intimate local knowledge of trophy trout in the Rotorua district. Still waters and streams, browns and rainbows, where, when and how. If you want the big fish package highly recommend Dion, a patient and insightful guide who knows how to keep his cool when the action hots up. A1 top bloke to spend a day with on the water in one of the best freshwater fisheries on the planet.

For many years I’ve been filming my fishing show on some the most extraordinary rivers on the planet. Today’s experience on the Nungataha River alongside my wonderful guide Dion was absolute angling alchemy. Sight fishing for wild trout at its best. For me it’s all about the experience and how it makes me feel. As I’m writing this I have that wonderful overwhelming sense of wellbeing because of being able to live life in the moment doing something I genuinely love. Get hooked up with Dion you’ll be pleased you did. ROBSON GREEN🐟😎🎣

Guided Trout Fishing Adventures

Nau mai haere mai and welcome

Let Local fishing legend Dion James guide you on a trout fishing adventure to remember. He’s Lived and fished locally for nearly 20 years and has the luxury of fishing these waters for years gaining invaluable local knowledge and a reputation for catching the infamous big wild Rotorua Brown trout.

Rotorua has a superb unique fishery, home to both wild rainbow and brown trout available in abundance in the region boasting 13 fishable lakes and many spring fed streams. With Lake Rotorua being one of the shallowest and populous of trout lakes in NZ, the intense summer temperatures warm the lake up driving trout to congregate in mass numbers into the stream mouths and streams to seek refuge. This is where the fishing can be spectacular, especially in the small crystal clear spring fed tributaries with Brown trout averaging a healthy 6-7lb and growing into double figures, being able to see them and sight fish for them is what the regions fishery is renown for. If that’s not enough the cooler months are equally superb whilst the fish stay upstream to spawn in mass numbers it is a sight to behold in a once in a lifetime adventure!
