Hey all, Fantastic winter conditions for the trout to run at the moment, and they are. At the moment the Tongariro is a bit up and down with the water volume and it won’t take too much more before it becomes un- fishable. The TT is well and truly blown out and won’t be back […]

Hey all, This report is dedicated to Steven from Wellington who apparently has checked the site 100 times today!! Like the rest of the country we have been blasted with the South westerly and now a Westerly wind that has been very gusty. With this came the rain and at times almost sleet! Great for […]

Brrrrrrrrrrrr hey all, Well I thought the fish would be cuing up to enter the rivers today. I was up early and shot over to the Hinemaiaia where I found it still to be low and clear. I pulled ONE fat little Jack out of a deep hole but that was it. Two anglers in […]

Hey all, If you hunt around at the moment you can still find a little back country water open to explore. The Waipunga being one of these. I took Bob from Australia there on Thursday to have a little look. This tributary of the Mohaka is not for the faint of heart, it can be […]

Hey all, Yesterday i guided Bob from Australia on the Tongariro. I decided to have a go with the wet line as it has been a bit of hit and miss with the nymph. We started at the Bain pool and worked down. The idea was to see as much of the river as possible […]

Hey all, I guided Emily and Drew on Saturday, both from America. I had decided to fish the Tongariro as both could cast a fly line and as all the other rivers are proving to be a little hard this was a good bet. We found Didymo Dave at the Plank pool who proceeded to […]

Hey all, I had a great day out on the water yesterday, fishing three rivers in one day. I started in the Waitahanui where I immediately picked up fish just up from the bridge. They were not huge, all being around the 3 pound mark but there were plenty of them and if you were […]

Hey all A mixed bag of reports in at the moment and as I have only been fishing the Waitahanui myself I can’t really vouch too much for these. I was shown a lovely Jack taken from the Hinemaiaia on Thursday morning that would have gone seven pounds. This angler showed me this awesome fish […]

Hey all, Well it probably doesn’t get too much harder than this at the moment on the Waitahanui. I have just come back in from doing the lower and middle reaches and only managed to pick up two trout for my effort, one I probably could have kept and the other was a shocker!! The […]

Yes I am looking forward to June, as May was crap!!! It did this to us last year with May being a very hard month and then June picking up in all rivers. At present all rivers need a little rain and since we haven’t had a decent blow on the eastern side for quite […]
