The start of summer weather, with very long days but often a little windy. Very good dry fly hatches, particularly in the evening on both the North and South islands. The trout are generally very aggressive to artificials and many guides believe this is the best fishing month of the year for browns.
In the approach to December it is one of the least crowded months to fish New Zealand waters up until Christmas Day. The trout in all the waters are active throughout the day.
Lake Rotorua and Lake Taupo are two of the most popular spots to fish with many avid fishermen installing the latest Garmin EchoMap UHD or the Lowrance Hook to help see what is below the boat.
The summer in New Zealand is clear days with large amounts of sunshine so we recommend buying an Anti-Glare (matte) screen protector for the Garmin Echomap UHD here and an Anti-Glare (Matte) screen protector for the Lowrance Reveal here.
Adding an Anti-Glare Screen Protector to any fish finder will help significantly reduce the glare on the device. You can browse our full store for any Anti-Glare Screen protectors here.
