After some heavy overnight rain across the plateau the Tongariro rose briefly to seventy plus cumecs. Its already dropped back to around thirty but the extra volume, color and the much colder temperatures forecast from Tuesday on is just what we need and should get some fish moving. Tight lines guys Mike ...

Even though we've had another week of showers with the odd torrential downpour most of the fish have stayed put in the lake. I think the flow graph crept past thirty nine cumecs at one stage but for the majority of anglers it made very little difference to the fishing. There were a few browns caught close in while the river was carrying some color but the rest of the time a lot of anglers struggled. Some small pods went through again this week, unfortunately they were well spread out and it was a case of blink ... and you missed them. Many anglers didn't arrive in Turangi until quite late in t ...
