Taupo Fishing Report
FLY AND GUN
Fishing out on the great lake has been good this last week or so with quite a few hardy souls getting up at the crack of dawn to enjoy some early season Harling.
Good numbers and quality fish are showing up at around the 5-7 meter mark in the mornings, Green Orbit, Rabbits, Parsons Glory and Ginger Mick have all been successful flies this week.
Trolling has been quite mixed with the ever changing winds at the moment but those prepared to keep moving and chopping and changing fishing depths have been rewarded with some good fishing.
A mixed bag quality wise but no more than expected for this time of year.
The local fly fishing just continues to astound us this year with significant runs still coming through, if you consider that the runs started as early as April this year and are still going strong as we head into Septmber /October it has been quite amazing.
Quite a few spent and darker fish will now start to appear as the spawned fish start to return back to the lake.
Many of us will now be planning our trips for the start of the new season I hope we don’t get to much in the way of prolonged rain fall between now and October as the rivers should be in tip top order for October 1st, be aware that some waters don’t open until December 1st it’s up to you to check the regulations on the area you intend to fish.
Fish and Game National licences are now available both online or from the shop
