Today started with a good frost and it came as no surprise to to see the temp gauge bottom out at -2. It’s turned out to be a lovely sunny day with just a wee breeze, way too nice to be spending it inside. The weekend was busy with reports of good numbers coming to hand but being prepared to walk to find more secluded water helped. The Tongariro river flow has been steady in the low 30’s making it great for both nymphing or wetlining, I’ve noticed a few anglers giving the Euro nymphing a go with good success as well. Pheasant Tail and Olive Caddis have been standouts for nymphing but as always vary colours and weights to find what is working on the day. The ever reliable olive Woolly Buggers have been the streamer of choice however like the nymphs some variation in colour can make the difference. It has been dry in Turangi for the last couple of days which has been welcome however there is sure to be a spot here and there which will induce a few more fresh Rainbows to run up the rivers and streams.
