Rainbow Trout Fishing3 hours – tailored to the needs of beginners and skilled fishermenThe Hamill family have been professional guides in the Rotorua region for many years. Departing from Solitaire Lodge’s Jetty, John Hamill’s generous Catamaran takes you on a private lake excursion jigging and trolling to proven fishing grounds. Lake Tarawera boasts the largest water volume in the Lakes District, at an average of 200ft deep, and is the ideal spawning ground for Rainbow Trout. Catching 4 to 5-pound trout is a regular occurrence, the excitement of which is only matched by the lure of the chase, and the enjoyment of fresh trout prepared for you by our Chef. Another option is to combine an early morning bathe in Lake Tarawera’s natural hot springs, breakfast on board followed by fishing for Rainbow Trout, – all in half a day

The subtle design brings the outdoors in, inviting you to unwind and soak up the peace and quiet of this tranquil setting. Minutes from this iconic North Island resort you will discover a multitude of activities. The lodge is also the perfect place to simply relax, indulge and rejuvenate, left in the able hands of your warm, friendly New Zealand hosts.
