Overcast .. no rain today.  A cool bustery SE wind is blowing. The Tongariro is flowing at 33.7 cumecs and is highly fishable today.

The Tongariro is highly fishable today. Most anglers that are catching something are either wetlining using orange beaded olive or black woolly buggers and most reports through from the nymphers are Caddis.

The Tauranga-Taupo River was high today but looks to be slowly coming down in volume.

There is penty of snow falling on the Kaimanawa Ranges but in these SE the mountains shelter us here in Turangi like the Southern Alps shelter Christchurch.  It may be raining hard in the Hawkes Bay but we just end up with a blustery cool wind. This keeps the river levels at a fishable level.

The wind has been ripping along the river today and tiring a few anglers out. Looks like we could be in for a nice sunny weekend.

The last two days I had off for my weekend and today I have been flat out in the shop today sorting out stuff for the Firemans Competition. Around 45 anglers registered this year. Their prizegiving is tonight.
