Tongariro Fishing Report August 19th, a very strange winter on the Tongariro ? the lower river has fished very well the last couple of weeks, sadly the upper river not as good, there are fish there but harder to locate.

The fish do not appear to be either heading upstream in numbers yet, or holding for long anywhere. Theories abound of course.

Glo bugs,  Hot spots, Woolley Buggers, Rabbits popular flies currently. The TT receiving is a lot of pressure.

From personal experience in times of pressure Euro nymphing excels ?. see web site “news from the river”
