comments:

I fished the lower Tongariro briefly Thursday evening, wading in thigh boots, and had no bites, and saw one other angler, who asked, 'Where are all the fish?'
The Bridge Pool could have been one answer, but I watched 6 biteless anglers for 15 minutes Thursday at 9 am, so action may have slowed, with water volume and level looking low.
