The hen rainbow shown above was hooked 3rd cast this morning on the same size 8
Woolly Bugger grizzly&lightolive
used last week.
My previous fishing attempt was Thursday evening in water between the Reed and Jones Pools, and lost a one second hookup.
Middle river Tongairo catches were made Thursday afternoon as rainfall increased.
Friday fishing was limited, wuth best chances in the Waitahanui and Hinemaiaia.
Decent catches were made from the Tongariro's Judges and Major Jones Pools over the weekend, and water volume this morning seemed higher than expected.
Anglers on Monday may have been limited by strong southerly winds.
Thanks to Jason Bleibtreu for working on the
Riverbirches Lodge webcam
now has 480 patterns of trout flies tied on Kamasan, Mustad, and Tiemco hooks.
