Hooks Mothers Day Special

We all love our Mums! There would be no better way to spend Mums day on the lake catching some fresh salmon, but unfortunately that’s still out of the picture for us in level 3. So Hook have decided to team up with Maude and get a box of goodies available for you to purchase for her. Some delicious cheeses, beautiful cold smoked salmon, caught and smoked onsite here at Hook and a bottle of Maude bubbles for your Ma’ to enjoy in her bubble.

If this sounds like your mums cup of tea (or glass of wine) click here to buy this fantastic package. This deal is only available locally (Wanaka, Hawea, Luggate). Have a Happy Mothers Day Wanaka mums.

Level-3 update. Online ordering. Pick-up service.

Our online ordering system is now in place making it even easier to order your fresh Hook salmon. Instead of phoning and emailing orders through please place your order directly online https://hookwanaka.nz/shop/

Our caught to order fishing process remains the same: all fish will be caught to order. Deliveries will still be Tuesday and Friday afternoons. And you can now collect your order from Hook between 3pm – 5pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. Be sure to get your order in by 12pm the prior day.

For those collecting from Hook: please make sure you have received confirmation from us before coming down to collect your fish. Your order will be placed on a table for contactless collection.

We will be adding more options over time. Look out for our Salmon Chowder heat-and-eat coming next week.

We have made the difficult decision not to offer takeaway meals or coffees at Level 3. There are so many small businesses in town doing such an amazing job of this. Please support them if you can! The more you spend with those cafes and restaurants, the more $$$ goes into the system – and that means more people buying our fresh salmon. Make the extra effort to download their apps, pre-order your meals and support local business. You buy coffee and cake from one of our neighboring cafes, they buy salmon from us, we buy a meal from a local restaurant and so it goes on – it’s a beautiful circle if we all continue to SUPPORT LOCAL.

Thanks everyone for all your support and patience.

Free range salmon caught to order


We have the green light to sell our fresh Hook salmon during lockdown. Your salmon is currently swimming in the crystal clear lakes of Hook Wanaka. Just say the word and your fish will be caught to order and delivered to your door!

While this is currently only available to Wanaka, Hawea and Luggate our area coverage will expand, as will the products we offer. So make sure to sign up to our mailing list and follow our social media for updates.

(Please bear with us as we work to keep Hook alive! If you have any suggestions/comments/ideas please contact us so that we can fix any issues immediately.)

Here’s an idea of what are we doing behind the scenes to keep to the rules and stay safe:

— All of our fishing equipment, preparation areas and equipment, door handles etc have been sanitised. Also, nothing has been touched by anyone other than our fishing guide and owner since we closed 2 weeks ago. Hook is clean as a bean.

— We already follow a strict Food Control Plan with tight rules on cleaning, sanitising and washing hands. Hands are washed before catching, after catching, before prepping, after prepping, before packaging, after packaging, before delivery…you get the idea. There is a LOT of hand washing involved.

— We are a small, family-run operation and will work with you to ensure we your salmon delivery is put in the right place, at the right time – not just inline with the rules of the lockdown, but sticking to any rules you’ve got within your bubble. We want to you to feel safe. We want to feel safe. We want happy bubbles.
