To start with, a big thanks to all the Taupofishing.co readers. Today we cracked a 1000 unique visitors for the first time, I appreciate your following of my web site. Now back to fishing!
I walked the lower and middle section of the Waitahanui this morning picking up a few fish like the one in the photo. These are fresh from the lake but a wee bit thin through the tail section. All the fish taken today fought very well but were released due to the thin tail factor. I took three on the Smoots Bloody Mary but all the rest took a #12 Champagne Orange dot glowie. First thing in the morning on the Waitahanui is producing some fish with things getting a lot harder once the sun hits the water. It is very clear at the moment.
The Hinemaiaia rip fished well first thing this morning with a few nice fish taken. The river is still getting a steady trickle of fresh fish going through but we need some COLD mornings to really kick this river off. I could say the same for the Waitahanui as well. Pressure on the Hinemaiaia has been quite high all this week, due to the upper section shutting off from Friday,(sob sob).
The last couple of Photo’s are of the beautiful sun sets we get looking out from the Waitahanui Lodge. This is a great place to watch the day end, while enjoying a good glass of wine or a cold beer. If you have not stayed with us before check out our accommodation page on this web site.
Take care out there on the water.
