We had some heavy rain in Turangi last night which was really loud pounding on the roof and ongoing showers have seen the Tongariro come up 42cumecs but looks to be dropping back down for now. Some good fishing was had early today and the conditions would have suited the swingers, not many other reports to hand so i’m guessing the lucky ones are still out there doing it. With the weather prediction for the weekend looking good and the potential for more fish to run it will be worth getting here.
The only one of us who has been out lately has been Jared and he landed these Rainbows from a short session earlier in the week. As usual the more popular pools were busy so a short walk gave up a spot that he had all to himself. Nymphing was the go and they took a variety of naturals, keep varying your flys to see what will work.
