Hey all, Things can’t get too much harder at the moment in the Taupo Rivers! Two very good anglers fished the Waitahanui yesterday, going in low at the SH1 bridge and ending up in Reids. They saw TWO fish, Damn!! The Hinemaiaia is low low low at the moment and as the rip looks like […]

Hey all, Oh God where have all the Trout gone?? Hard would be the call of the day out there. I have fished most of the rivers over the past four days and found them all to be absent of trout. The best bet would be to get onto the Tongariro and fish there. The […]

Hey all, Wow things are hard out there. The competition that we held over the weekend proved the point. We had 18 anglers on the water for the day and a half, although most of them caught fish, it was hard to get one that was going to win the comp. In the end a […]

Hey all, Good to see the rain again, it has come at the last possible moment for the lake to fill but has been present for weeks now and all the rivers have run higher due to it. I have fished the Waitahanui and the Hinemaiaia over the past three days, doing different sections on […]

Hey all, Well we certainly got the rain again! Great for the lake level though. Both the Tauranga Taupo and the Tongariro are unfishable this morning with the TT being just under .700 and the Tonga’s running at 73.
