Fishing Reports

Friday 12th February 2021

Highly Fishable

Fine and sunny start to the day here in Turangi today.  A cool start to the day.  No wind as of 9:00am.  The Tongariro is clear and fishable and flowing at 22.4 cumecs.

Nice fish reported from a Jigger today out in Lake Taupo.  Looks like smaller Grey Ghost and Jack Sprat flies.

Some brown trout reported caught over the last few days in the Tongariro ….. quietish on the evening rise still.

Saw more Passion Vine hoppers when I was weeding the garden at Lunchtime …  We have a good stock of Peter Carty’s Passion Vine Hopper flies in the shop at present.
