There are good numbers of trout in the Waitahanui at the moment, although by the sound of it some of them are fairly thin on it.
The Tauranga Taupo fished really well on Wednesday and then the rain came down in torrential sheets and made it unfishable, it is well on its way back down now and should have a few freshies in it.
Good reports in from the lower Hine as well.
The rest of NZ opened up today but I think unless you fished one of the lakes then you would have struggled to get onto a river. I hope they clear somewhat for the weekend.
