Saturday 28th of May 2022



It's another stunning day on the Central Plateau today, and tomorrow morning it appears to be fine although there could be some wind leading on to a wet week ahead - which will be good for the rivers and the fishing! Although we had the recent rain the rivers have gone back down, with the Tongariro currently at 20.6m3/sec. The Delta has been firing and those reporting good numbers and sizes have been using heave and leave patterns or a black booby. 

FOUND: Prescription glasses found on the Tongariro river in a case and brought to Sporting Life for safe keeping. 


The Central Plateau Women's Fly Fishing Social Tournament is in it's final day and going from the photos and stories being circulated, there have been some beautiful fish caught and Ali (pictured above) hooked some hard fighting fish.
