Friday 16th September 2016


Overcast with light rain falling at times. No wind here in Turangi so far this morning. The Tongariro is fishable. It appears some heavy rain is forecast tomorrow so pay attention to river levels.  The Tongariro also has a recreational release tomorrow so take care when wading and crossing to islands.

Most anglers are reporting catching fish at present with some really nice ones showing up.  A few getting "busted & dusted!" or practicing "mid stream releases"

With the recreation release tomorrow, might be a good time to get out the wetline or the switch rod and fish "across & down"


(Below) Andrew was out and about on the Tongariro this morning.  Here he is down at the Breakfast Pool pointing to just one angler.  He said there were four anglers were in The Major Jones pool.  Absolutely no wind which is a bonus for the fly caster.
