Disciples of trout fishing travel to this fishing Mecca that is Owen River Lodge year after year for the chance to catch one of the elusive brown trout that populate the local rivers. Owen River Lodge is the brainchild of Felix Borenstein, a world-class host, and bona fide fishing fanatic. Every detail of the lodge is centred around fishing—the lodge itself is situated in one of the finest sight-fishing brown trout in New Zealand–and the world.
One thing that sets Owen River Lodge apart from the rest is that it offers access to so many different rivers, from small spring creeks to iconic freestones, without the necessity of a helicopter. In fact, there are at least 25 exceptional rivers and streams within an hour’s drive of the lodge.

Owen River Lodge is situated in a very unique and challenging trout fishery, where the fishing can best be described as hunting with a fly rod. There are 25 pristine rivers and streams within a 90-minute drive of Owen River Lodge, many of which can be accessed either on foot or in a 4WD, making this a great destination for the discriminating angler.
