The New Zealand Trout App is the modern guide for trout fly fishing in New Zealand. It’s information regarding access points are public knowledge provided by Fish and Game, DOC and other resources. Respect private land and always ask for permission to access.  NZ Trout App holds no responsibility for current condition of physical access or the current fishing quality.  NZ Trout App recommends an angler take every step to protect their belongings, themselves and others in safety and logistics. An angler’s personal safety is their own responsibility and not NZ Trout App's.  If hiring a guide, NZ Trout App advises to always check their safety plan for any emergency.  Treat New Zealand's outdoors and waterways with absolute caution as they can be extremely unforgiving.  It is NOT recommended to use NZ Trout App as a navigation tool.

While there are legal bag limits set by Fish and Game and DOC,  NZ Trout App strongly encourages catch and release.  Fish for tomorrow and the next generation of anglers. Always check the current fishing regulations with F&G or DOC as they often change year to year.

The provided access points and local knowledge are simply a stepping stone for an angler to start from.  NZ Trout App has no intention to expose ‘secret spots' or techniques. For the ultimate experience,  hire a pro guide or do what every generation before them has done: Explore and try new techniques for themselves.  If you do ever find a ‘secret spot’… keep it to yourself.  Exploration is one of the best gifts we have in Aotearoa.
