Cruise And Fish Rotorua

Sophia Street
Rotorua, New Zealand

Cruise and Fish are located on Lake Tarawera. The lake is a pure Rainbow trout fishery. We use most methods, harling, trolling with down riggers, fly fishing and spin and the best method depends on the time of the year. Boat fishing closes on the 30th June and starts 1st October.

There are thermal springs on the lake and you can enjoy a soak in the hot springs and even cook your catch in natures ‘sous vide’
