Fishing Reports

Wednesday 12th August 2020

Highly Fishable

Kind of an overcast misty morning here in Turangi today with the sun burning through as about 8:45am.  No wind as of 8:45am.  We got some rain yesterday but this was only enough to stick the pollen to the ground.  It didn’t really do anything to the level of the river.

A few anglers who have called into the shop over the last day or so have reported doing quite well on Green Caddis.  Also a few more reports of hatching Mayflies. This is a great time of the year for nymphing.   It is almost time for swinging the wee wets.  This is just around the corner.

Lost today … x1 4pce rod tip.  If you find this contact us here at or Ph (07) 386 8996

Found today … x1 wooden landing net.  If you think this is yours contact us here at or Ph (07) 386 8996

(Below) A little bit of delayed coverage from my disaster day out on Saturday the 8th. This is just below the Admirals Pool. The wind was screaming through here.

(Below) I did pick up some fish on Saturday but in that wind I just found it energy zapping just trying to stand up !

(Below) This was quite a solid fish that put up a good fight !

(Below) The last few times out I have landed quite a few jacks.  I really like the red colours on the gill plates.


(Below) A video of releasing the fish below.  You can hear the wind in this too.


(Below) The Cherry Blossoms have now bloomed. This is the cluster that I took a picture of the other week.  I use these as my weather gauge. Over the years I have noticed that when we get the Cherry blossoms we usually get a good dumping of snow on the top of Mt Pihanga at some stage while the Blossoms are in bloom. It will be interesting to see what we get this year.

(Below) “One Ring to Rule Them All” I was walking to work this morning and found this ring of pollen that settled on the edge of a puddle overnight.  The pollen gets everywhere at this time of the year.
