Poronui Ranch

Fishing and Species
The 16,000 acre Poronui Ranch has 25 miles of private water on the Mohaka and Taharua Rivers. They also have arranged fishing privileges on nearby Maori reserves. In addition, the optional helicopter fly-out fishing features jaw-dropping scenery with the crystalline rivers full of fish.

Poronui is a luxury fly fishing lodge nestled in the Taharua valley southeast of Taupo on New Zealand's spectacular North Island, offering guests the opportunity to catch legendary fish in stunning and pristine surroundings. The 16,000-acre property is a special place to fish and spend time. The landscape at Poronui is as varied as the sky is big. Crystal clear mountain water tumbles through forests of beech and native ferns, then twists its way through alpine meadows of wild grasses on the valley floor.

The giant trout of New Zealand are legendary. Avid fly fishermen from all corners of the globe have come to Poronui to test their skills against New Zealand's notoriously large and wily brown and rainbow trout. Guests will discover uncrowded streams, with angling opportunities to suit every preference or ability, no matter what the time of year.

They offer a range of outdoor activities from fly fishing to hunting and have excellent facilities for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, clay pigeon shooting and rafting. There are more than 100 miles of roads and tracks that wind their way through the hills and along the streams for exploring the native bush and wilderness.

The main lodge and guest cabins have evolved from what was once a rustic fishing camp into one of the world's finest fishing lodges. There are seven cabins that can accommodate fourteen. Accommodations have been designed with the traditional fishing and hunting lodge atmosphere in mind, but also offer modern luxury and style. In addition, there is a riverfront Safari Camp. Situated on the bank of the Mohaka River, the camp is a day's horse ride or 30-minute drive from the lodge. Not exactly rustic, with hot running water and flush toilets, it is a fun place to spend a night or two and base your daily fishing or activities out of.

Groups or families may enjoy staying in the Blake House. It was built by the previous owner and is a special place to stay. Situated on an imperious plateau overlooking the Taharua River, this magnificent residence has been graced by corporate leaders, celebrities and royalty. If you’re seeking five-star accommodation in an utterly unique location with whisper-quiet seclusion, luxury and the world’s finest food and wine, search no more. Your ultimate wilderness retreat - and Poronui’s crowning glory - is Blake House.

The Stables offers gym and health club facilities, including steam and sauna rooms, and massage treatment rooms. Also located in this complex is a cigar room, including a full-sized antique English billiards table. The Stables also houses the outdoor barbeque area and underground wine cellar – both used regularly as dining venues.

The lodge kitchen is renowned for its outstanding food and wine selection. Venison, pork, lamb and wild duck come from the property and surrounding region, and the proximity to the ocean offers an abundance of fresh deep-sea fish, salmon, lobster and mussels. Our specially packed streamside lunches are likely to be the very best picnic you've ever had. The wine cellar stocks more than 10,000 bottles of most internationally recognized vintages as well as the cream of New Zealand's wines, many sourced directly from the adjoining wine producing area of Hawkes Bay.
