Taupo Fishing Report - 11th June 2009
The White Cliffs, Rotongaio Point, and Wharewaka Point were some of the better spots for the boaties on Lake Taupo this last week, once again early mornings were definitely the time to be out on the lake to get the best results , 80-100 feet deep , top lures this week Spotty Gold Kiwi, Baby Brown Kiwi and Orange and Gold and Traffic lights were the top performing lures.
Quite a few small fish caught this week but a reasonable number of fish in the 3-4lb bracket were also caught ...
We have fronts coming from both sides of the lake over the next few days so you will need to check the weather reports closely before making definite plans ...
If in doubt the Taupo Bay will offer some shelter and is still fishing quite well ...
The local fly fishing has been quite difficult for most as the rivers have continued to stay low and clear ...
The Tauranga Taupo has been quite good for those that have stayed on the move and prepared to put the yards in to find fish.
The Tongariro has not had many people venturing beyond the town pools this week, those that have, have had mixed results.
We are in need of some rain and as I write our prayers may have been answered as the forecast is rain over the next few days.
The Waitahanui , T.T and Tongaririo will all have fish waiting to run so get the big gear out, dust off the big indicators and get some fresh glow bugs on some new tippet and get out early to make the most of the conditions as they arrive , if we have a repeat of the last rain we had a few weeks ago it should be all on!!
Don’t forget the wetline as this can be deadly with some Black, Brown or Purple woolley buggers swung round in the current.
Take care with your wading if the water is coloured and tight lines till next week .
