For a much more detailed article on fishing where a stream or rivers enters a lake see this.

General tackle guide for fishing the stream and river mouths around Lake Taupo

The river and stream mouths that enter Lake Taupo, and there are forty two of them, provide superb fishing throughout the year.

In Summer brown and rainbow trout chase right into the mouths feeding on smelt. Rainbow trout will feed throughout the day, although the bigger fish and greater numbers are usually found at night.

Brown trout are usually found at night, usually late at night.

( For further information on night fishing see two articles based on my two articles originally published in the New Zealand Fishermen magazine, Night Moves, and Night Moves II.) and now articles 3 and 4.
