Above – German angler, Reimund Hartinger, was delighted with the good condition of the Rainbow trout. He proved the trout survived the flood and despite the grey pumice colour restricting visibility in the river, they soon located and attacked his olive woolly bugger. Landed below the Trout Centre.
Following the 700 cumec flood on Friday-Saturday the Tongariro soon resumed ‘normal service’ with the ‘after’ pics taken Sunday morning when the river was flowing around about 40 cumecs. Very fishable….
