Saturday 28th April 2018

 

Overcast with light drizzly rain falling at times. No wind as of 8:45am. The Tongariro is clear and fishable. Just remember that there is a recreational release for the Tongariro today.

Andrew was down at the river first thing this morning checking it out and said some nice fish came out on the wetline.  The river should come up a bit with the Recreational Release mid to late morning.  Keep fishing as the fishing is usually reported as quite good.  Even keep swining the wetflies if the river gets some colour to it as the fish come closer to the edges in the higher flow and the colour disguises the flies a bit more.

(Below) Andrew looking downstream from the S.H.1 road bridge to the new river works which people are refering to as "The Canal".  The Optimists amongst us are looking at the pond above this and thinking "mmmmm this looks fantastic for swinging a wet !"
