I did a "tramping" fishing trip of about five weeks back in 2010, right around this time of year. I did all South Island and barely scratched the surface.

For most of the streams, I felt "late" -- there are only so many fish (though they are BIG on average), and after they get pestered a bit, boy do they get cautious. If you don't already know how to stalk, you'll definitely learn!

Next time I'll go in the early part of the season, but at that point rain and river conditions might be tough. If you're going with lodges, they'll likely helicopter you to some good water. Though, if you like backpacking, tramping there is awesome :)
