Tongariro & Taupo Rivers Winter Fly Fishing

We love fly fishing the local Turangi and Taupo rivers in winter as the action can be fast and furious and there are many options close to both Taupo and Turangi so plenty of accommodation is available.

The world famous Tongariro River has big brown trout beginning their spawning runs in late summer, and rainbow trout running right into November. The Waitahanui is famous for monster brown trout that are hard to land, while the Tauranga-Taupo, Hinemaia, Waimarino and Waiotaka each offer unique fishing. Fly fishing in winter offers excitement and trout in great condition.
