Taupo Fishing Report - 21st October 2011
Fishing out on the lake has been just a little inconsistent this week for the boaties. Early morning harling is still going really well. Waitahanui is probably one of the more productive areas at the moment for harling.
The downriggers are finding the going just a little harder this week with key fishing depths that are varying from anything between 50 and 100 feet. The key again is to vary the depth all the time until you find the zone. Also chop and change your lures not only the colours but vary from standard sizes to King sizes to try to see what is working on the day.
Top lures this week are Yellow and Green and Spotty Gold, Baby Brown and Orange and Gold Cobras in both standard and king size.
Local rivers had another deluge of rain this week, by Wednesday there was only the Hine and the Waitahanui left fishable and both rivers were producing fish for most anglers. Small sized glo bugs in the morning and naturals during the day were doing most of the damage.
Forecast for the weekend is quite good with just showers predicted so the local rivers should be fishable by Friday and should all have reasonable numbers of fish running them. My money would be on the Tongariro and the T.T to be the top two performers this weekend but you will need to double check those levels before making plans.
Tight Lines till next week
