Hey All, A few posts ago I had a wee moan about the size, condition and overall numbers of Trout in the Taupo rivers. I wasn’t too sure how that was going to go down and half expected to be bollocked by the public. As it turns out I received email after email backing my […]

Hey All, I fished the upper section of the Waitahanui this morning and apart from one spent Jack in the Pig Pool was skunked. It seems all the angling pressure yesterday moved the fish through. The river is in excellent winter condition with great colour and extra water. Marilynn, (Correct spelling this time sorry dude) […]

Hey All All the rivers were blown out today with heavy rain that fell last night. A whole bunch of the TRM crew turned up on Blake road to try and plunder our precious water but they all sucked and so went home fishless. Ross apparently is at a loss to were he should put […]

Hey All, This is what it is all about this weekend. Ross’s report from last night cracked me up, almost his entire team are anglers I have guided over the past three years. He has the audacity to say we at the mighty Waitahanui should surrender, Ha I have seen your anglers fish, I am […]

Hey All, This season has been a shocker as far as I am concerned, yes the fish have been a little better in condition but are SMALL!!!! The authorities need to pull their head out of their arses on this fast. Yes we have battled some serious weather conditions that have made the fishing challenging […]

Hey All Very hard going over the weekend, with most of the rivers being high. The Tongariro was still fishable  all weekend although it did climb somewhat. The wet liners would have been ok. The Waitahanui is high with colour at the moment, there are fish in there though and from what I have heard […]

Hey All, I have had a few phone calls this morning from regular fisherman asking what the conditions are like and is it worth fishing Taupo this weekend due to the forecast of rain. This is a hard one as I understand with the petrol prices getting here to find all the rivers blown out […]
