Taupo Fly Fishing Report 13 Sept 2012

Posted by admin on September 13, 2012

It's a stunning morning here in Taupo Thursday the 13th , as I type this latest Taupo fishing report. There is fresh snow on the mountains and ranges, the sun is coming up and there are only light winds. All Taupo rivers have been fly fishing well. The rivers are starting to recede which means be ready for some Caddis action!

The rain forecast last week came a little late and in short sharp bursts which you can see if you view the local Taupo river levels over the last seven days.

The short bursts of heavy rains at night and strong Westerlies pushed a few fresh fish up all the rivers. The Waitahanui again was on fire with good numbers coming out of the Straight and the newly formed Groin pool. Good conditioned Rainbows are being caught further upstream on small Orange Glo bugs with variations of peach and pink.

The Tongariro was another river that has been performing well and has remained fishable all week. Same as last report the wetliners have had the best time this week with the best pools being from the Bridge pool downriver. All the usual Tongariro streamers are catching, such as Woolly Buggers and Rabbits. Similar nymphs to the Waitahanui will do best here if you are nymphing, and make sure you have bought some Caddis variations too if you are going to be out all day in the sun.

Sun is predicted for Friday and Saturday which should be great fishing days, then rain arriving late Saturday and through to about next Wednesday. If we do get three days or rain this will push more fresh fish up which will make the weekend of the 21st September onwards a good option too.

Until next time, good luck and tight lines.
