Gees other way around - ive got all the gear but not that much idea
Yes that's my plan mate - Saturday Tarawera looking good that southern end but probably Moose lodge area Rotoiti will be sheltered too - if I do ok on thur at Rotoiti probably go back sat but want to have a look at Okataina Friday in the rain but wind is ok then. fly fish log pool maybe?

Was down fishing Rotoiti Thursday and Friday and also managed Okataina.
Thursday we had a west about 10-15knots - a bit more at times - found some fish at Hauparu bay - caught a few but nothing startling - Hamils killer best fly - fish were in 25-30m
Friday went to Okataina - horrendous conditions to start with but settled down nicely - lost a beaut fly fishing a glow bug at Raynors 1 (small stream entering lake) that busted me off - hard to find any fish jigging at all.
Late afternoon effort on way back at Rotoiti - similar to Thursday - caught a few at Hauparu bay in similar depth on same fly but lost the fish after a while and couldnt find them again

Just off the phone from my mate who fished 5 nights last week. If I remember correctly went 8, 0, 2, 1, 4over the 5 nights fishing from the shore. Was moaning about an XOS fish that pulled the hook after a long fight. Apparently I have fresh smoked trout arriving tomorrow!!!!

down for the last 3 days , sorry redfinger my phone sucked it on Friday and had zero back up so didn't catch up Ouch, from all the fishos we ran into the fishing was tough. 
Fished 3 mornings on Tarawera ( as the wind beat us each arvo )  new to jigging it was the first try on the boat with my uncle ( guy in the photos )  .
5 fish over the 3 mornings , most in the 5lb mark very good nick and lots on fight in them . hope to hit the lakes again from october , but for now off sea fishing tomorrow

Hi Guys
I haven't been fly fishing/Trout fishing in general for nearly 6 years - just purchased a Winter Licence this week and am keen for some tips for where/when/what to use. 
I think my last decent fish I caught was on a cold wet and windy morning (around 6am from memory) wading out beside a big old Pine or Macrocarpa at the end of Tamatea St at the Eastern end of Rotoiti near a pipe ("The Pipe"?). I'm guessing that's as good a place as any to start, especially while the wind is coming from that end of the lake? 
I also have a jet ski that I currently do most of my sea fishing from and am wondering whether I should also bring that over since the lakes don't close to boats until the end of June. Any input appreciated. 
Cheers
Cliff
(weather is not that flash in Tauranga at the moment, so I was thinking "cold wet and windy - time to head over to Rotoiti and check to see that my waders don't have a leak!")

Hey Cliff, good to hear you're going to get back into the trout fishing. I'm pretty keen for some shoreline fly or lure flinging also. I've done my back in again, so no boating for me for awhile, so very keen to have a crack from the shore - pending permission from my physio. There was a good thread on this site last year about winter shoreline fishing around the lakes, with some good info. Heaps of spots - the bleaker the night the better! 

Unfortunately never got to have a jig on Rotoiti this year because of the blimmin' back. Might catch you soon. Steve.
