Weather: Partly cloudy with low winds, a chilly winters day ❄❄

Tongariro River Flow: 29.7m3/sec

The Tongariro winter fishing is in full swing now and anyone willing to brave the cold temps are finding decent numbers of fish around. The forecast is predicting an extended period of clear weather with cold overnight temperatures. The river is still sitting pretty clear at the moment meaning covering water and using more natural flies is proving very successful. However, on the lower river wetliners report doing well on both natural wet fly patterns and brighter, colourful flies as well. Reports from the smaller rivers have been very good with seemingly plenty of fish running up from the lake.

**Recently a couple of missing fly boxes have been brought in from the Tongariro. Get in touch if you think it might be yours**

The Sporting Life guides have been going strong lately, keeping busy and getting into plenty of fish. For those willing to invest in improving their fishing skills or simply to go out for a great time on the river, get in touch as winter dates seem to be filling up quick!
