Taupo Fly Fishing Report 18 Sept 2015

Posted by admin on September 17, 2015

We've had a patch of clear weather with no substantial rain over the last couple of weeks, which means lower clear conditions in most Taupo rivers, but also some stunning days to enjoy.  The weather is breaking today with low cloud and drizzle overnight and rain expected to settle for the next few days which will undoubtedly trigger more fish to enter the rivers.  Over the last decade or more over half of all spawning trout have run in September or later.  This is a great time to fish as the days are longer and warmer and there are less anglers on most rivers.

Taupo Fly Fishing Report 16 Sept 2014

Posted by admin on September 15, 2014

We’ve had some good heavy rain over the last few days and nights which will get more fish moving, along with the extra flow in the Tongariro river from the recreational releases.  You can see river flow graphs on our river flow page here.  Before the rain, conditions have been low and clear and rivers like the Tauranga-Taupo and Waitahanui have been quite difficult for many.

Over the last few years the Department of Conservation reports have shown the majority of trout, particularly Rainbows, don’t move into the Taupo rivers until September and later.  This makes Spring fly fishing some of the best in the year as there are more fresh fish, often fewer anglers, and the days are a little longer and a little warmer.

With higher flows the wet-liners have been doing well on the Tongariro, with the usual flies being green and brown Woolly Buggers and size 8 red Rabbit also getting results.  When the flow is up remember to fish the fringes of pools before charging in past your knees.  We have guided novices many times who have been unable to cast far but have hooked trout in close when the water was slightly murky.  If the river is racing then trout are naturally going to seek the most economical flows with least resistance so they can preserve energy.  The town pools on the Tongariro fished well on Saturday and those fish will have moved up further, whilst fresh runs will have come in over night.  This is good news as it means there are fresh run trout all through the river.  If you have a favourite pool then get there and have a crack.  If you are unsure then try the Bain or Swirl pools down lower, or up round Red Hut are good choices.  If you are nymphing test out the size of Glo-Bugs you use in these conditions as you may be surprised that a larger size attracts the fresh runners.
