Hook is a lake to plate salmon fishing and restaurant attraction located in Wanaka, the only interactive fishing experience right at the heart of New Zealand’s Southern Lakes. 

We are now open Thursday to Sunday.

Catch a Chinook salmon from our spring-fed fishing lakes. For $7 you get a rod and all the gear you need to catch a salmon then you pay $31kg per the weight of the fish you catch.

Then relax or explore while our team prepare it for you!  

No experience is necessary, Hook is family-friendly, and is perfect for couples and groups. 

We are one of the must do’s in Wanaka, don’t miss out on this unique experience.
