Taupo Fishing Report 27 April 2012

Posted by admin on April 27, 2012

The Taupo fishery has had some very good runs of fresh run autumn spawners over the last few weeks.  Excellent sized and conditioned trout have been caught on the back of the last rains.  Taupo fly fishing rivers are now low and clear and are getting just a little more challenging, but we can report there are trout to be had by those who get out and try.  Some huge browns have now entered the Taupo system and can be seen throughout the lengths of most of our local waterways and also on the local stillwaters.  With winter coming use these local websites to monitor river levels and flow to see when the trout will be running.

The next rains that are due in the next few days will bring another pulse of fresh fish, mainly Rainbows now but this year it has been noted how big and numerous the fish have been compared to this time some years ago.


Dry fly fishing is pretty much over now as we concentrate on some of the biggest fish of the year.  Try nymphs and swinging big flies, the fishing can be great on rivers that have little or no pressure on them now the school holidays are over.


Bring on the rain !!!!!
