26th February 2021: Turangi trout fishing report

Weather: 24 degree C (day), 14 degree C (evening), hot & sunny

Feburary has delivered some very hot lovely sunny days for the central plateau and Turangi this year.
Lake Taupo has fished well for boat anglers with good reports still coming in for jigging, harling, and also those fishing down deeper during the day.
The Tongariro river has been the pick of Turangis rivers this month fishing well for anglers fishing dry fly Cicada patterns have good success.
Evening dry fly fishing on the slower pools of the Tongariro river is a great place be just on dark with lots of trout rising.
Stream mouth fisher people are catching some nice eating fish trout that are seeking cooler waters of the streams that runs into the warm lake.
Browns Trout should continue to come up Lake Taupos rivers and streams this time year for their Summer spawning run.

Cheers tight lines
