Freshwater season is open!
This year sees the 10th Anniversary of the increasingly popular Lake Okataina Trout Comp.
Held on the 1st of October every year to open the freshwater season the comp draws contestants not only from NZ but from as far as America and Australia.
As well as the world class trout fishing Lake Okataina offers stunning scenery with a crater lake fringed by native bush alive with bird song.
The anglers compete in a friendly competition hosted at Lakes Lodge right on the shores of the lake.
