Fine and sunny start to the morning this morning. A bit of a "crisp" feeling in the air this morning. All rivers are fishable. I went for a look along the Tongariro yesterday and saw quite a few good sized fish.  I managed to spot a few more browns as well. Also I saw the odd fish rising mid morning.  Keep the dries handy if you see this, especially on a sunny day. You may get some Mayflies hatching at this time.  Also I have noticed more green caddis nymphs. The wind picked up a little more in the day.  A few more leaves appear to be dropping off trees which indicates Autumn is well under way.  Should still be a few more weeks away until the Equinox winds start to blow.

Here is a little bit of delayed coverage from the start of Easter. This is John Ooi with a brown trout hooked in Motuopapa Bay.  Reports before the weekend indicated quite a few browns off the mouths but would now suspect some will have moved into the rivers with the rain and higher water that we got prior to Easter weekend.
