Tongariro River Flow: 29.2m3/sec

Weather: Sunny 🌞

The last couple of day there have been mixed reports from anglers some finding nice amounts of fish in the Tongariro river others finding it a bit tricky. We suggest changing your flies often as reports of fish taking natural flies and egg flies in the same pool are common.

I fished the Tongariro a couple days ago in the late afternoon after running errands. I was using Category 3 PTB Carpet Caddis as my bomb and a Category 3 RTB Hare & Copper as my dropper I didn't get much luck fishing the pool, so I thought I'd let one of my last drifts swing into the center of the river and I managed to hook into a nice fresh hen which put up an awesome fight! 

Every morning it's getting colder and colder as we get through the winter. So, to keep you warm we have some great thermals to keep you toasty, our ThermaTech thermals are great to wear under your waders when fishing CLICK HERE to check them out! Also keep your feet warm with our Nz Sock Co outdoor Socks!
