Weather: Mostly Sunny 🌞🎣
Tongariro River Flow: 24.6m3/sec
A customer walked in with his trousers tucked into his lucky bright red socks and greeted us before saying "it's another day in paradise" and he's absolutely right. We live in paradise with many places to explore on foot, bike, or kayak and don't get us started on the fishing! There's plenty of rainbow trout in the Tongariro with the odd brown if you look out for them along the edges, and those out there today are doing well with small nymphs under a dry fly or small indicator, fishing along the edges or riffles.
Boat anglers on the big lake are steady on the increase as the days continue to lengthen and warm up! Toby's and Tassie Devils are heading out the door lately, customers indicate that it's a must to have a variety of lures handy in orange, pink, green, and the classic black/gold combo. Despite the wind that has been lingering it is possible to find isolated spots which are calmer but be prepared to launch further from your usual ramp and keep an eye on the conditions.
Didymo Dave stopped on by the shop for a catch up and generously provided us with some more flies! These are available in store only so be in quick before they're all gone.
