Wednesday 6th June 2018


Fine and sunny start to the morning today.  A brisk +2 degrees celcius.  No wind as of 8:45am.  The Tongariro River is clear and fishable.  We are almost at " Hump Day " ... the shortest day of the year being Thursday the 21st of June. Then we will be heading towards the Spring and the insect hatches.  There is still a lot of fishing to come in the rivers yet. 


Don't forget that the upper reaches of fishable rivers are now closed until the 1st of December 2018. 

Also remember that Lake Otamangakau is now closed for the season and will re-open on 1 October 2018.

Lake Kuratau and Lake Rotoaira remain open until the 30th of June.

(Above & Below)  There were a few anglers out and about at lunchtime today.  This was about 12:30pm.  I saw one lady walk off with a fish and another angler landed one on the nymph while I was there. The day started off nice and sunny but it looks like the cold snowy front is just moving into town. You can see by the dark clouds to the left of the picture above.

The picture below is an angler fishing just upstream from the S.H.1 road bridge.
