To date fly fishing the Taupo rivers has been excellent, slowing this past week as rivers become lower and clearer, fishing pressure has been heavy, one might say?

Therefore my advise, smaller flies, get into less fished water if you can, natural patterns, green and white caddis, a good time to euro nymph, it creates less disturbance on the water for one thing.

Lake Rotoaira is now open of course the reports from there have been good so far, beautiful trout from a beautiful lake all the is required to fish it is a Taupo licence and a $5 permit, sold from the Creel and others.
