I fished the Tongariro with a friend this morning for a few hours. As we crossed the Hinemaiaia bridge there was no one there at 7.00 am, the Tauranga Taupo also had no cars in it.
The Tongariro water was up and had quite a bit of colour in it. We manged to pull fish in all the pools that we went to and some of them were even good fish!! Green cadis did the trick for us today as well as the dreaded glo bug.
