It’s not just about the trout at Murchison’s award-winning Owen River Lodge
Experienced guides take guests on guided brown trout catch-and-release fishing trips, with more than 29 rivers and streams accessible within a 90-minute drive from the lodge. It’s fair to say Felix Borenstein is slightly obsessed with brown trout.
