And if you are looking for some great places to stay and get the best of the fishing action on the Taupo rivers this winter we recommend:

Windsor Lodge: On banks of the Waitahanui and providing excellent budget accommodation. Also home of the famous Windsor Cup fishing competition.

Tongariro Lodge: Superb upmarket accommodation on the banks of the Tongariro River. They also have great guides.

Sportsman Lodge: Mid priced accommodation in Turangi township with excellent access to all the best Tongariro pools.
