We fished the TT on Saturday, low and clear, lots of fish but not taking. We persisted and they came on the feed around 2pm, managed to pull 7 out of one pool, all around the 2.5 to 3.5lb mark. They all took the glow bug.

Tongariro ( Flow Rate )

9:00am Looking great to fish today. A BIG frost to start the day. No wind as of 9:00am.  Most anglers fishing with the nymph have been using glo bugs and caddis also worth a go with flashback pheasant tails and horn case caddis and small hare and coppers. Wetliners the stock standard dark olive Woolly Bugger, orange rabbits, glo bugs, hydro hustlers.

Lake Taupo ( Levels  )

Lake Taupo Recreational Marine Forecast


Few Reports. Jigging appears to have tapered off for most, however an angler called in yesterday using lime bodied grey ghosts and large yellow parsons glories.  Worthwhile having a go at the Delta using heave and leave glo bugs. Some nice fish hovering off there last week. Good reports from the odd angler out there trolling over the last week. Seems to have been spotty golds or green and gold toby working well in the Tokaanu Hole and in Stump Bay. 


Lake Otamangakau (Levels )


Now closed until 1 October 2017. 


Lake Kuratau

Few reports.  Last month on the current season. Closes at the end of June 2017.

Fly fishing try Olive Woolly Bugger, Gold Bead Woolly Bugger, Red Setter, Orange Bead Black Woolly Bugger, Chartreuse Bead Black Woolly Bugger.

Spinning try Black and Gold Toby, Green and Gold Toby, Spotty Gold Cobra, Yellow and Black Toby.
