Thanks to Christchurch angler, Dave, for reporting generally tough fishing early this week in the Tongariro River.
On Monday, Dave said he saw only one kept fish, near the Bridge Pool Rockpile, and the fish was too far away to estimate quality.
Dave did land one fish on Tuesday, and he said high water could have been a problem.
Water level now is approaching perfect, for the weekend.

Checkout is temporarily closed at superfly.co.nz, with 510 trout fly patterns, tied on Mustad, Kamasan, and Tiemco hooks.
