4th March 2022: Phoebe and Joshua

Phoebe and I had such a wonderful day trout fishing with Ken - it really was one of the highlights of our time in NZ and both really wanted to learn the art of fly fishing! We learned so much about fly fishing as beginners. Thank you to Ken for being so patient with us! We would love to come back and fish with him again one day. The memories of our day fishing on the Tongariro will last a lifetime, and Ken has inspired us to continue fishing when we get back to the UK. We love trout! Particularly Annabel the baby rainbow trout Phoebe caught!

3rd March 2022: Turangi trout fishing report

Weather: 21 degree C (day), 6 degree C (evening)

Lake Taupo and Turangi area was certainly blessed with a wonderful summer this year which is only a memory now we are entering Autumn. Sunny days crystal clear rivers continue with no rain at all to speak of here in Turangi and the central north Island.
Trout Fishing remains strong here in Turang with many options as our Autumn temp lowers slowly. Tongariro river Tauranga Taupo river and Hinemaiia are all holding some nice Trout Rainbow and Brown with many fish still focused on surface food.
Stream mouth fishing reports around Lake Taupo coming in have been good with some lucky anglers landing some very nice conditioned Brown trout and Rainbow trout.
Good reports of the Tongariro river mouth fishing the Delta have been circulating as well and this should continue as the first spawning fish start to gather around the cooler waters of their birth stream ready to run the river to spawn and lay their eggs for the next years trout.
Lake Kuratau is fishing very good with high catch rates for a anglers this lake has spender eating trout due to the diet of crayfish.
Cheers tight lines
