Warm luxurious accommodations, the most experienced team of professional fishing guides ever assembled in New Zealand, and friendly motivated  staff members to care for our guests.

The top of the South Island of New Zealand has the best sighted trout fishery in the world and Owen River Lodge is located right in the middle of the region. This very special location allows our guests an enormous choice and variety of rivers, streams and lakes to fish, with over 25 rivers & streams within a 90 minute drive.collage owen 2

If this wasn’t enough, our location right on the boundary of Kahurangi National Park allows our guests to quickly and easily fly into another dozen or so stunning wilderness streams. It was my desire to create a luxurious fishing lodge that delivers a relaxed, understated and highly professional level of service in stylish surrounds, serving wonderful food to travelling anglers and non anglers alike

Owen River Lodge has developed one of New Zealand’s most experienced guiding teams. All our friendly fishing guides are local kiwis, all of whom are members of the New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association. With their assistance a day on the river is full of action, excitement and generally much laughter. Our elegantly designed guest accommodation cottage suites are full of sunlight, and offer stunning views of the river, the Owen Ranges and Kahurangi National Park.

What makes Owen River Lodge so special? Well, in order to be the best, a combination of many parts needs to come together—we have warm luxurious accommodations, the most experienced team of professional fishing guides ever assembled in New Zealand, a friendly motivated team of staff members to care for our guests, talented and innovative chefs, modern well maintained facilities, a huge selection of Simms & Sage loan gear for our guests to use, easy access to the greatest sighted trout fishery in the world and understated, unpretentious friendly service. 

Our aim is to spoil our guests rotten, allowing them to unwind, relax and enjoy the stunning countryside the lodge is located in and, of course, to indulge in our world class trout fishery. The views from the Lodge and guest cottage suites are breath-taking, with sensational vistas to Kahurangi National Park and the Owen River. The lodge sits on the bank of the Owen River and with almost a kilometer of river frontage; it is an ideal locale for a quick practise before you venture out with your fishing guide or for that quiet after-dinner cast during the evening rise.
