6th October 2016: Turangi trout fishing report

Weather: 14 degree C (day), 2 degree C (Evening), Overcast Raining.

Spring weather here in Turangi certainly is true to form and giving us all seasons at once with lots of light rain over the last week and some nice sunny patches occasionally, all rivers have fished very well with some nice fresh spawning trout in top condition caught by anglers.

Heavy rain at present falls here in the Turangi area and you can feel the temperature dropping as i write this as it appears there,s is a southerly front is on the way. We certainly will get another fresh run of Rainbow Trout up all rivers here in Turangi after this front has settled.

With all back country rivers open now from October 1st, remember to renew your Fish & Game licence. Lake Taupo has fished very good for some school holiday makers fishing down deep has produced some nice eating trout. Stream mouths around Lake Taupo are fishing well after dark up until midnight.

Cheers from Ken
