Rotorua is a tourist mecca renowned for its rich Maori culture, geothermal landscapes and lush forests. Its numerous lakes, streams & rivers make it a paradise for anglers who are attracted to the area by large fish & high catch rates. 

The Rotorua Anglers Association was established in 1949 and is an integral part of the Rotorua fishing scene. We currently have around 60 members covering all age groups from juniors to retirees. We celebrate our 75th birthday in 2024. 


Take a few minutes to have a look through our website. There is a wealth of information about the many opportunities that are provided by us to improve the quality of your angling experience. Whether you are beginner, looking for tuition and the advice of experienced anglers, or a competent angler looking for an opportunity to share your knowledge and skill with others, the Rotorua Anglers Association has something to offer you.

You can catch up with the latest news from the association on our Newsletter page here.

If there's anything you need to know that isn't on our website don't hesitate to email us at:


Or you can drop into our rooms at 33 Pererika Street, Rotorua any Friday from 5-7.30 p.m. Relax with a drink from our licenced bar or a coffee and chat to our members about what we do and what we have planned. You can be assured of a warm welcome from friendly and knowledgeable anglers.
