Spot the Brownies!!
I guided on the upper Waitahanui this morning. There are fish throughout this part of the river but they are very warey and easily spooked. Take your time, most pools have fish in them.
The Waitahanui Rip was busy today there were eight people fishing at two pm.
I have heard of some great fishing on the tongariro from a few fishermen now. It seems there are hundreds of Browns scatered throughout it’s length and a good few Rainbows as well. What a great way to spend a Sunday walking the banks of this mighty river!
