Fishing Report Sept 17

Not a lot to say, the Tongariro still fishing very well, Wet liners have done well of late due to higher river levels.

Anglers reporting Rainbows up to 7lb in some cases, everyone appears to be catching good numbers of fish up and down the river.

Tip: No reason to be using flurocarbon at the moment with the higher river flow/level and with the numbers of spawning trout still.

As we get into the warmer months (if) and levels drop, trout will actively feed at all levels then use fluro ? particularly on smaller rivers.

Fluro Brands we carry: Sightfree, Tiemco, Trout hunter,Double X, Sunline, Rio.

Monofilament: Maxima, Tiemco Misty Plus, Sunline QV, Airflo, Umpqua.
