About the Turangi New Zealand Fly Fishing Season
Looking for a great fishing spot in New Zealand? Turangi is the perfect place to drop a line all year round. The fisheries here include local rivers and streams, the main lake Taupō, and backcountry rivers – all of which offer excellent fishing for rainbow and brown trout. The average weight of the trout here is 1-2 kilos, but there are always a few trophy fish up for grabs each season. If you’re new to fishing or just want to increase your chances of success, consider booking a fishing charter turangi. The guides at Chris Jolly know all the best spots and can help you land that big fish you’ve been dreaming of.
Weather On Your Turangi Fly Fishing Adventure
Turangi is a great place to come for trout fishing all year round. In the winter, the weather can vary from 2-22 degrees Celsius, so it’s important to bring seasonally appropriate clothing. The summer months can be quite humid, but the humidity does make for great trout fishing conditions. Polarized sunglasses are a must-have for any fly fisherman, as they help reduce glare on the water.
