Tongariro River 29th – 31st Sept

River was low and very clear. Fishing started off a bit slow, but got better as I found where the fish were laying…

The trout hatchery proved to produce the most fish for me again and no one was really fishing that area on the Thursday.

It’s amazing how many fisherman their is on the river during the week, it’s a bit of a challenge finding some where to fish on your own, but well worth while looking…
