Highly Fishable

Fine and sunny start to the day here in Turangi this morning.  Another good frost to start the day today.  No wind as of 9:00am, however going by yesterday this picked up mid day to late afternoon.  The Tongariro is low and clear and conditions are highly fishable.

A reminder that Lake Otamangakau has closed for the season and will re-open 1st October 2021.

Lake Kuratau remains open until 30th June 2021 and will re-open 1 October 2021

Lake Rotoaira remains open until 30th June 2021 and will re-open 1 September 2021

Also a reminder that New Season Taupo Fishing Licences are due to begin on 1 July 2021 so your current one remains in use until the end of this month.

Hi Jared,

Just a couple of photos of our recent 11 day holiday to Turangi. The Big O produced every day despite the weed problem as did a couple of remote streams in the forests. I usually can’t wait to fish the Tongariro River but didn’t have a cast in it this year. No need as everywhere else we visited was firing ! C u in 2022.
