These are supposed to be a visual introduction for novice anglers from overseas who have not been to the Tongariro River before, to warn them what to expect. More overseas anglers were seeking more info on Tongariro River Pools so we sent these videos to illustrate what anglers can expect on the mighty Tongariro… The relative merits of each pool have been analysed by the expert team from Sporting Life for the new Tongariro Fishing Map which will be printed soon.
As there are over fifty pools we have split it into four videos of 2-3 minutes each:
The following start with the “Upper River Pools”, starting at The Fence Pool.
Then the next has the “Middle River Pools” from Red Hut.
The next has the ‘Town Pools” from Hydro to Bridge Pool.
The last is the “Lower River Pools” to the Delta. Enjoy:
But that’s not all – there’s more.
The best way to get around the river from Tongariro River Motel is by TRM bikes.
So this next 3 minute video gives an impression of biking the trails.
