The Fishing Season

Spring: October, November and December are months which can be changeable, but fish do not see
as many anglers. Early season fish are less picky.

Summer: January, February and Marchcan be excellent dry fly fishing. This can be most stable for time for weather and river levels.

Winter: options available subject to weather, some fantastic spring creek fishing is still an option

Terms and conditions

Please note: Deposits are non refundable. The deposit is used to secure guide for the dates booked on the expectation of a full days guiding. With limited days in a season and once booked our guides are committed to those dates. We will often have to turn others away for those dates and should you cancel have no way of recovering that lost revenue.

Weather cancellations

Very occasionally we cannot fish. You should come prepared for rain or sunshine. Should our guide need to cancel the day due to weather or river conditions for safety reasons a full refund less any transaction fees will be given.
