Wow! We got quite a bit of rain overnight.  This was nice to cool things off !!  The rivers are up and the Tongariro is currently unfishable. No reports on the other rivers at this stage but would suggest unfishable.  The Tongariro peaked at 103 cumecs here in town. If no more rain then the river should be fishable this afternoon albeit still with some colour. This will benefit the wetliners.

I received this email yesterday thanks to Lisa.  Lisa writes:
