Fine, warm and humid. No wind as of 9:00am. The Tongariro is fishable.  This got a bit of a spike in it yesterday due to some heavy rain. There was a good thunderstorm in the afternoon and Andrew reported some hail. This rain will be good for the holiday home owners ... will keep the grass nice and green ... and long .... so, the bad news is you will have to spend some fishing time mowing lawns when you get here!

This rain should be good to keep the river nice and fresh and the temperature much cooler. The little spike in the level may move some more brown trout up river.  Hopefully this water will keep the ground soft and will be good to help cicadas hatch.  I haven't heard too may over the last week or so as it has been a little cooler here in Turangi but I am sure once the sun comes out they should start up again. 

Also a heads up Sporting Life will be closed only on Christmas Day.  

We will be open Boxing Day and New years day and the day after New Years Day.
