I fished the Tauranga Taupo with Brett from CPF Guiding today. We were only going to do the lower and middle pools but got carried away and walked about 1 KM up from Rangers.The middle section of the river had one or two good fish like the one in the photo but was still a little light on them.
The section from the cliff pool up to Rangers was barren apart from one or two fish and they had their mouths firmly shut.
We got onto them above Rangers and this section is as beautiful as anywhere I have fished, just a pleasure to be there.
Brett used Naturals all the way up and although he struggled in the middle section on the fresh fish he made up for it once we got up the top.
