    Tauanui via river

    Has anyone been here recently via the logging track/river route? Planing a trip there for the first time and in curious what the river is like to walk up?

    It hard to see when you eat everything you shoot.

    Anyone done any fly fishing down the Tauanui River?

    Unfortunately since its so close to town it does attract the odd meat head

    I've seen a few trout up there nothing huge

    Able to tell me if it's a decent area to take two young fellas (10 & 8)? I'm taking the family away to Lake Ferry/Ngawi for the weekend in mid November and thought I'd take the lads into Aorangi for a wander. Never been in there though so looking at the best way/place to get in from.

    Thanks scoped, I'll keep that in mind. It all depends on whether we decide to stay in Ngawi itself or in Lake Ferry... Waiting to hear back from people in Lake Ferry to see if we can use their house.
