What an amazing start to the winter fishing here in Taupo, the reports continue to relay great fly fishing on most of our local spawning streams now with good numbers showing very early for the time of year, not only are the numbers good but the size and quality of the fish being caught have been exceptional , The Tongariro continues to have a really amazing run of stunning Brown Trout still running through the system we are definitely starting to be the envy of the fly fishing world with so many stunning wild Brown Trout now in the fishery .

The T.T also continues to have fish running throughout the length from the bridge all the way up although the fishing has reportedly slowed a little as the water level has receded , lots of fresh silver bullets of between two and four pound being caught and back to the condition we have come to expect of T.T fish.

The Hine has good numbers of fish in the river now though surprisingly a good number of dark spent fish are showing already so the Hine has had some very early runs this year, you can clearly see the reds and spawning areas now with many fish in the act of spawning, please be careful not to wade through these areas walk round and target the fresh runners,  they will give a far better account of themselves.

The Waitahanui has also enjoyed some excellent fishing over the last week or so with some stunning Rainbows being caught all the way from the bridge up. The big Browns are still showing up but are getting increasingly challenging as the winter fishing pressure increases , the river mouth itself has been on and off as a there has been a big moon to contend with this week  but on the overcast nights there have been some very good fish caught .

The weather forecast as I write is for more rain this week increasing toward the weekend so you if you haven’t  already been out there yet get those waders and jackets on and get out and enjoy some world class fly fishing in our stunning Taupo outdoors .
