Great morning fishing

Really enjoyed 3 hr fishing trip on Simon's boat. Joined 2 other friendly anglers and Simon tried hard with different methods including soft baits and trawling to get us amongst the Trout. The scenery was amazing and Simon was very knowledgeable about the lake and surrounding area and happy to share his knowledge and answer any questions. We ended up catching 2 nice trout which Simon expertly cleaned and prepped. Overall I would definitely recommend Queentowm fishing and wouldn't hesitate to re-book if in the Queenstown region in the future.

A great trip and a fantastic host, it’s a must do

Simon was fantastic from booking to trip and finish. He had a late cancellation which meant we were the only two on the boat and he was kind enough to still run the trip for us ! He quickly found the right spots and my partner and I both managed to catch a good size trout. We had a couple of other hook ups and had a fantastic time. The scenery is amazing and it wouldn’t have mattered if we hadn’t caught anything. Can’t recommend Simon and Queenstown Fishing highly enough, you won’t regret it. Booking with bookme was easy and will use again.

Fantastic Fishing Trip

Fantastic day out, the skipper was friendly, patient and full off great advice. We came away with 2 beautiful trout and lots of tips for our fishing trips when we get back home.

Great fishing charter

Bought this for my hubby and son to do. They loved it. Trevor was a great skipper and was very informative about the area and had lots of local knowledge. My son caught a brown and rainbow trout and hubby caught one trout.
