What to bring


You will find that most guides will be able to provide everything you need to catch a fish. However, here are a few things recommended to bring to get the most out of your trip.:

  • Sunscreen
  • A wide brimmed hat
  • Insect repellent
  • A fishing licence
  • A water bottle
  • Wet weather gear
  • Warm clothes
  • Dull coloured clothing


Fishing Licences

A NZ Fish & Game Licence won’t be valid in Taupo. You will need a specific Taupo licence if you are fishing there. If you are only fishing in Taupo then you won’t need a NZ Fish & Game licence. More important information on licences can be found here.



If you would like to bring your own fishing equipment then are a number of quarantine considerations you must be aware of. Please see more information here about bringing fishing equipment to New Zealand.
