Fishing Lake Tours Mapourika

All this drizzly weather’s been great for fishing!  We’ve been landing lots of Brown Trout and salmon, even sending a few happy customers home with fish for tea!

He did not just catch a good Trout but a wee Salmon as well.  We were so happy to send Ted home with a contagious smile on his face!

This nice Brown was caught by a couple on their honeymoon.   They came out kayaking, then fishing one day and came fishing again the following day when their Helicopter Flights were cancelled!  Hopefully they enjoyed their romantic Trout dinner.

Salmon fishing Lake Mapourika Lake ToursThis small Salmon was released just after this photo to grow to a bigger size.  Lake Mapourika is stocked annually with salmon, but we’re anxiously awaiting the big sea run salmon to swim into the Lake!
