Notice: All orders over $20 for the remainder of October receive a free Taupo Fishing indicator!!!
The spring rains haven’t disappointed this year although that means most of the back country stuff is blown out. I watched the levels come up on all the rivers I monitor, right around the North island. It certainly was a band of heavy rain that fell. I see the Tongariro went up to over 500 cumecs, that’s a good clean out! It has dropped somewhat now, being around the 100 mark. I can’t wait to have a look in here to see what has come in. I was looking back at some pics from this time last year and I caught some beautiful trout from all the rivers. I didn’t go out in the weekend as I expected the poor old Waitahanui would have been one of the few rivers fishable and that would have received a pounding from anglers. I would have expected trout to have moved into the Nui however with that wind we received, I bet it colored up too.
I am going into the Tauranga Taupo as soon as it is fishable.
I can’t wait for the back country rivers to drop as I have a few new flies to try out. This little beauty comes in size 14 and I believe it will take trout in most rivers. It is now on my web site for sale. All orders over $20 receive a free indicator for the rest of October.
Take care while the water is still high, watch those crossings, things might have changed under foot with the high water levels.
