Heli Fishing

‘A day in paradise’

The Wakatipu region boasts some of the best trout fishing in the world. Remote high country lakes and rivers contain trophy fish that fisherman until now could only dream of catching.

Heliworks Queenstown has for many years been providing access around Queenstown to the pristine trout filled streams and rivers in the using its modern helicopter fleet.   Within 15 minutes we can have you on the banks of some of the southern alps most famous fisheries.

Get in touch with us for our set transfer rates to some rivers in the Queenstown area. Please note that the open season on these rivers is the 1st November – 31st May.

Also please note that the Greenstone River has a controlled fishery period from 1st February to 31st March each season on the Greenstone River.  A controlled fishery license will not be available until around January and will need to be applied for either by yourself or your guide (http://www.fishandgame.org.nz/otago-greenstone-controlled-fishery).
