Fantastic morning out fishing with Stu and my 5 year old. Stu is super friendly and accommodating. Supplied everything required for a successful trip catching fish. We caught rainbow trout and salmon. Would definitely recommend when visiting Queenstown, NZ

My father-in-law and I went on a charter with Stu at late notice and it was fantastic. The views are unbelievable, Stu's boat is perfect and we caught over a dozen salmon and trout in 2hrs. Highly recommend! Thanks a lot Stu!

8 of us went out on an afternoon on the lake. Amazing scenery and a bonus that we caught 8 fish in the 2 hours we were out. Stu was a fantastic guide with great knowledge of the lake and Queenstown. Would definitely do again...More

What a great day! We have never been so successful fishing in freshwater before. We caught brown trout, rainbow trout and salmon. We highly recommend it for everybody!

Great morning out on the water with Stu. Got us to where the fish were even though it was winter and they aren't as active. Caught heaps of fish and the kids loved it. Thanks Stu.
