Lake Taupo Trout Fishing And Guiding Report For The 25th Of September 2010

Hey All,

And the rain just keeps coming down.

The Tonagriro was fishable today although it is certainly running high. When I crossed over the bridge at 2.00pm I thought the colour was perfect!! Lets face it the surrounding land must of had a good cleaning off by now and so most of the run off is clear. A nice big Woolly Bugger would have been the go today on this river.

The Waimarino also looked good. I forgot to mention, I got my vehicle broken into on here the other day!!!!

The Tauranga Taupo at the bridge looks like a bloody lake, deep and with a beautiful milky green colour. It is still running a bit high and you wioll need to take care with the crossings but if we don’t get any rain in the next few days, late Monday Tuesday will be good on here, although what has happened to all the pools is yet to be seen!

The Hinemaiaia as I shot over the bridge still looked like it was coming down fast, still a little high.

The Waitahanui straight has lost about 200 meters and there are one or two getting into the upper pools with all this wind we are having. It is still very high and so you will need to adjust weight.

For the last week I have been going HARD out sorting access on rivers I normally fish and ones I am about to explore. I have been in contact with the owners of some privately owned land for some time now and last week I got the go ahead to fish the river that flows through this quite exclusive piece of water, I am one VERY happy angler at the moment and can’t wait until Friday the 01st of October. This has a good mix of Browns and Rainbows up to 8 pound so yeah I am cracking my neck!!!! I also spotted another possible beat using Google Earth on a river system that I already guide on and so will take my son in there next week to suss it out and maybe cut a track down to the rivers edge. This is great fun and is really rewarding to get clients into water that hasn’t been touched. If you are interested in a early trip then get in touch with me.

Regards Shane
