Wednesday 18th July 2018


Fine and sunny start here in Turangi today ... how come when I am at work the sun comes out and when I have days off the river usually floods ??  No wind as of 9:00am but this may increase during the day.  The Tongariro is clear and fishable.

Had some good reports of some really good solid fish from up at the Tauranga-Taupo river.  It might pay to take a trip or three up there, especially while it is a nice sunny day.

It is nice to finally have some good sunny weather for a change.  I went down to check out the river at lunchtime and saw quite a few anglers out and about enjoying the good day. I overheard an angler say he had lost a big brown on the first cast.

(Below) There were a couple of anglers fishing above the Mangamawhitiwhiti Stream at the Hydro Pool.  They appeared to be wetlining.
