Overcast start to the day here in Turangi today. This is making things a little cooler. No wind as of 9:00am. The beauty of the cloud is that it usually keeps the wind away. Once the sun comes out then we seem to get the wind.
There have been really good reports from the Tongariro River for the evening rise using the Sporting Caddis. Some anglers are amazed at the number of fish they are seeing rise. The funny thing is that over the years anglers may have struggled during the day seeing few fish and then upon entering the river to fish for the evening rise where they have caught nothing during the day the water boils with fish !
Good reports from Boat anglers now with lots of green beetles reported. Try green and gold cobras, green orbit harling flies, green lightening flash toby.
(Below) Most anglers have been finding the 28 degree temperatures a “real dog” to fish in and these two anlgers helpers found it a bit to much yesterday as well ….. they got into the shop where we have air conditioning and they just “flopped”onto the ground ! Brings a new meaning to the word ” Hot Dog ! ” ….. this is Archie and Newton
