Hey all I guided Chad from America today. We checked out the Hinemaiaia first but due to angling pressure went looking for less occupied water. The Tauranga Taupo once again had very few cars in the parking area and so we gave that a crack. Chad had a few skills that we could work with […]

Hey all I took Bill from Putararu onto the Hinemaiaia and then the Tauranga Taupo this morning. I thought with all the rain that we had over night the Hinemaiaia might have been up a little more than it was. It did have a little extra colour and flow to it but not too much. […]

Hey All, A very busy weekend on all the rivers due to a few angling clubs having their annual weekend away and a few tournaments going on as well. The Tongariro river was like an ant hive yesterday and although fish were taken from all sections it was hard to find space at times. No […]

Hey all I sneaked out for a quick fish this morning into the lower Waitahanui. We had wind all night and I thought there might have been a few fresh fish come in over night. There wasn’t!!!!! I managed to pull three from the fence pool up to Cliff but it was hard going and […]

Hey all, We have steady rain at the moment which should help all the rivers. The Hine in the morning will definatly have some fresh fish in it. If the water has some colour try a size 12 Orange Champagne dot Glowie. This is a wonderful colour at this time of year on this river. […]

Hey all. I was ordered, (yes ordered) to go out and catch a Trout for tea this morning. Man do I not need to be asked twice on that one!! The one river at the moment which seems to be holding and receiving fresh fish is the Tongariro and so that is where I headed. […]

Hey all I fished with Russell from Auckland today. The plan was to catch trout not just learn water and techniques. So for this reason the Tongariro was our target. If we had received the rain we were supposed to get then maybe the Tauranga Taupo would have been easier but the weather forecasters muffed […]

Hey all, A very cold start to the morning today with -3 at the lodge. The Waitahanui has become very hard with very few fish going through. The upper section seems to have a few but they are moving through fast. Gordon Williams has shallowed up on the true right but has made the true […]

Hey all, The Waitahanui river is a bit up and down at the moment. Yesterday afternoon I took a client into the lower reaches where we pulled fish from most of the pools. We dropped a good jack but apart from that all the fish were pretty mediocre. We did a few of the upper […]

Hey All Sorry for the lack of reports over the past few days. The Lodge has had my attention and there has been very little time for fishing, (sigh). Lesley has just purchased a new business that she is running from the lodge, it is to do with scrap booking. This is quite an arty […]
