Lesley and I took the kids up to the Auckland Zoo Wednesday afternoon and have just come home. Man how the hell do you Aucklanders survive in that traffic?!! I shot into the lower Waitahanui for a look see and was dissapointed with the lack of Trout. Not only did I get badly skunked but I never saw a fish at all. The two fisherman that I spoke to had also been bite less. If you were going to fish this river tomorrow my advice would be to do a quick look at the lower pools, as we have a good South West blow at the moment, but then if you did not have any luck there to get up into the top water, or move to a different river. If the fish ain’t there you can’t catch them!!
The Hinemaiaia has a few fish in it but they are in small groups and again you might have to move around to find them. This river is going to have some pressure on it over the next week and especially this weekend.
I haven’t heard anything about the Tauranga Taupo but the level looks good and so I am sure there will be trout moving in there.
I am aloud out tomorrow so will report in then.
