The Owen River Lodge is a specialist fly fishing lodge, which opened in November 2003. We are located in the Owen Valley, in the Nelson Lakes district of the South Island of New Zealand. This unique location places us right in the middle of the best trout fishery in the world.

The views from the Lodge and cottages are breath taking, with sensational views of the Owen River, the valley and Mount Owen. The lodge sits on the bank of the Owen River, ideal for that quiet after-dinner cast during the evening rise.


Our facilities comprise the main lodge building which includes the dining room, lounge room, sitting room and of course, the bar.

Guests are accommodated in cottages located in the garden with stunning views of the river, the valley and the mountains beyond.

We would like you to think of our lodge as your home away from home. The lodge has two lounge areas. One of these is equipped with an 80cm TV/Video Player, DVD player and a Sony Playstation 2. This area has a PC for you to check e-mails etc. And just like home, we have a guest laundry for your use.
