If you were smart and you wanted to catch trout today then you would have hopped into one of the rips around the lake. I fished a number of them early this morning up to 11 am and pulled fish from them all. The clean water on the side is a good bet, although the Hinemaiaia had them in the coloured water. Heave and Leaves in dark colours did the trick for me today. Some of these fish were BIG with a good mixture of Jacks and Hens throughout the morning. When the rivers clear we should have some great fishing ahead of us.
I found this Koura’s claw on the Tauranga Taupo lake front. What a mother of a Koura it must have been as well, no wonder some of these fish are huge. That is a Genesis Large arbor reel it is up against!!
Take care on the roads
