If its of any help I had a nice 3lb rainbow out of the coro area on the weekend on the way to play some golf at Whangamata.  There are fish around but not heaps. I would not normally take a fish, but this one had a damaged eye and was bleeding a bit, so we smoked it.
Stomach was full of nymphs and brown beetles.  Fish dry& droppers and keep your nymph patterns patterns small.  PT and caddis are fine.

PM if you need more deets.

Take a spinning rod for the big pools too

Thanks for the replies. I'm happy to play on some streams for a change. It's a family holiday, my 4th visit to Hahei and I thought I'd give myself a day or two on a stream. Don't really care about size or numbers, just happy to toss a fly about.

If you are at Hahei, then the waiwawa is your nearest.  Fish & game pamphlet is online and useful.

alternative is to try the southern estuary on cooks beach with a fly. its awesome

enjoy Cool
