New Zealand Fishing info?

Howdy All,

I'm in need of help in planning a fishing trip to New Zealand in January. Do any of you have any information or recommendations for lodges on the South Island? I have zero knowledge of the area.
Any input is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I spent several days at Owen River Lodge, and would highly recommend it. Excellent guides, very nice accommodations.

Wife and I just returned from several weeks on the South Island. Fished out of Nelson, Gore and Te Anu. Enjoyed Gore/Mataura River area the most. Stayed in a nice, but not fancy, full kitchen unit at the Oakleigh Motel.

Couldn't recommend a finer guide; David Murray Orr.
