Fine with overcast conditions. A cool Southerly breeze. The Tongariro is flowing at 23 cumecs and is highly fishable. We got a really good downpour of rain yesterday afternoon and into the evening. This was really good to dampen down the dust and for the Bach owners to support the oil industry by having to purchase new gas for the lawnmower.
This will have put some fresh water into the river. The cicadas have slowed down a bit due to the cooler temperatures, however the rain was good soaking rain which is what they need to soften the ground …. just need the temperatures to creep back up and we should see more hatch.
