Thursday 6th October 2016


Overcast with some rain falling at times.  No wind at this stage.  The Tongariro is clear and fishable.  It is flowing at about 36 cumecs as of 9:00am. 

Had a report of an angler catching fish on the evening rise the other night using a caddis dry fly. Fingers crossed the river holds and doesn't get a massive flood. Also other reports of some nice fresh fish moving through the river.  Reports indicate there one day, gone the next.  Also reports of quite a few spent fish showing up in places now.
