Lost Rod. Anyone fishing Ngongotaha Stream, second carpark on Fairy Springs Road, I left an 8 weight rod at the carpark when I drove off New Years Eve, and would really like to get it back.

Lake Rotorua today in the boat with daughter, eastern (lee) side of Mokoia Island as wind made things a bit lumpy. Caught 6 released 5 all from 35 to the 47cm 2kg keeper over 4.5 hours.

Brown trout tassie devil doing the damage in 12-15m on the downrigger as no other depths or lures touched when trolling/harling.

Water temp at surface 23 degrees.

Nice work. Haven't fished Lake Rotorua for awhile, must get on there again soon. Have had good results from there.

Heard a report that someone pulled a 32lb brown out of Rotorua recently, believe it was one of the fish released into the lake by F&G a few months back. Imagine that for a surprise!

Think it might be legit, heard it from a builder who was working at a house near ours at Rotoiti, he said apparently the fish was smoked up and eaten!

Do F&G release 30lb+ trout into the lakes? It must be from a few years ago - I thought they were yearlings?

They were carrying out some maintenance on one of their show ponds at the hatchery which meant they had to do a release of extra oversize fish into rotorua several months back. I know someone got one of the 15 or 16lb models within a couple of weeks at the liberation point, and they mentioned there were some 20lb+ models in the release. So wouldn't suprise me if it's legit!
