11th May 2019: Tim Pankhurst from Wellington

Tim Pankhurst from Wellington stayed at Creel lodge in Turangi while Trout fishing the might Tongariro river fly fishing streamer style.
The Tongariro river and all others are running very low and clear with the temp still up at a balmy 19.c today day & 11.c evening here around the Lake Taupo and Turangi.
Light Rain is due again this evening in Lake Taupo area this should induce a small run of fresh Rainbow and Brown Trout to enter all rivers and streams and around Lake Taupo and make their annual spawning run for the year up river.

Cheers tight lines

6th May 2019: Turangi trout fishing report

Weather: 18 degree C (day), 6 degree C (evening)
We have certainly have been blessed here in the central north island Turangi with such wonderfull sunny days giving us fantastic weather, little wind, warm evenings.
Trout fishing has been very good with lots of trout still focused on the surface feeding taking dry flies while our temp is still up. Local fishing on the Tongariro river has been good with some very nice fresh Rainbows Trout being caught with nymph and wet fly.
Tongariro river is still holding lots of Brown trout as they continue to make their yearly run up the river. All rivers are holding fish around Taupo and Turangi with the Waitahanui fishing very well.
The small stream mouths around Lake Taupo are really firing at present and fishing very good with many nice trout Brown and Rainbow trout being caught after dark now the moon has lowered.
Cheers tight lines
