16th January 2022: Mark's first trout fishing

Mark stayed at Creel Lodge in Turangi for his first trout fishing trip on the Tongariro river fly fishing dry flys Cicda and Green Manuka beetle patterns

From Mark:
Just had my first New Zealand fly-fishing experience with Ken. Incredible day out on some magic waters. Caught some great fish and learned a huge amount about my technique (or lack there-of, in some aspects...)

Took what I learned out on the river a couple of days later and managed a few more fish. I will definitely be back as soon as I can. Thanks for a great day out.!! 😎

3rd January 2022: Turangi trout fishing report

Weather: 28 degree C (day), 15 degree C (evening)

Spectacular weather here in Turangi for the last 2 weeks blanketing the central north island has been well received by hundreds of people enjoying Lake Taupos smooth calm conditions with lovely sunny days. Great reports from Boat fisher people fishing lake Taupo are coming in with anglers catching nice Trout early morning and evening being most productive all techniques appear to be working ,trolling, Jigging, harling.

Turangis rivers the Tongariro and Tauranga Taupo are holding some nice fish as the Brown Trout that have moved into the river system from Lake Taupo for their annual spawning run and the big summer feast of Cicadas.

Green beetles fished as a dry fly are fishing fine for us as there are still lots of Manuka bushes flowing. Stream mouth fishing around Lake Taupo after sunset seems keeping anglers pretty happy fish seek the cooler waters that flow into the Lake Taupo to refresh and feed on crayfish and small fish. Lake Otamangakau is fishing very good all styles nymphs, dry fly, wet fly are working.

Cheers tight lines
Ken
