Based just outside of Motueka, Uppacreek Guiding offers fantastic accommodation ranging from motel & home-style accommodation to high end lodges and local access to many crystal clear rivers filled with brown trout. With a lifetime of local experience Aaron offers fishing and camping trips (including helicopter fly-ins) specifically tailored to meet your needs.
The Top of the South is an awesome area to explore with a rod. Rivers range from remote streams flowing down through forested mountain valleys to large open rivers. The amazing clarity of the rivers mean that most fish are sighted before the cast is made. Our brown trout average around 4.5 lb with the chance of encountering that fish of a lifetime - a 10 lb brown!
