    Ngongotaha Stream Fishing

    Any tips, access points, flies to use on Ngongotaha Stream
    Any photos you got to share... then share them...

    I am thinking of doing some flyfishing there for a day in a couple of weeks on a stream around Rotorua. This one seems ok. Anything else worth visiting?

    Waititi is about 1km up the lake (East) and fishes well. I was up last weekend though and the Ngongotaha was reported to be fishing better. No fishing past the road bridges until after Dec 1. Needs the lake to warm up a bit to really fire at all the stream mouths.

    Flashbacks, bead head HnC, carrot nymph, hares ear and modern variants. Often I will take fish in these areas where others won't because I will present a fly rather than launch it via some rough arse bazooka technique and my flies are not universal snapper kingfish trout dimensions. 14s and 16s work well. Oh and a small bouy is not the best strike indicator. They are small streams, a piece of white wool is more than sufficient.

    As above and hang on, some decent fish run up through the streams. Have had a nice couple of days fishing there back in Early 2000s, bloody good fun!

    Cheers

    Cheers guys...
    I will need to find out where this bridge is so I don't step the boundaries...
    Alternatively, I was looking at Tarawera River and Lake on the maps but not sure how accessible the river is... So Ngongotaha will probably be it...
    Does Ngongotaha run on private property or it is easily accessible?

    You cannot miss the bridges. Both streams have reasonable access up the banks (well last time I was up the Nongotaha there was). You'll have to check the season is right but the beach from the Orchard around to the Te Wairoa on Tarawera can have some awesome fishing too.

    Often heaps of people fishing just on the main road below the bridge on the Ngongotaha stream. Went for a walk up Hamurana spring on the weekend an it was just filthy with fish round the 2lb mark, not sure if your allowed to fish up there or not though never seen anyone fishing it.

    ------------------------------------------------

    Ive only fished it a handful of times during the winter mainly - hooked a couple of steam trains & lost em - did land a nice 8lb brown one fine sunny Friday arvo - not really an expert up there but its nice to fish .........

    If you got a Kayak and a jigging set up & some spare time - try lake Rotoiti put in at gisborne point paddle out to the 5km bouy & Jigg above & below it depending on how the wind is drifting/pushing ya around - you should be in about 25m if you get on them - hang on for some nice fish - Told a mate to do the same last year on his 2nd drift he got a 10.5lb rainbow - having only got sea fish before he thought this was normal so took it home & filleted it.....
