... trout levels had exploded and no new stock was needed. Turns out the hatchery doesn't have very good hours so we only got there a half hour before it closed. We still got to see the center and see a pond full of trout but not much else.
After our less tan thrilling hatchery visit we stayed close to base and drove to some scenic lookouts that weren't too far away. Iti came too! It's surprising how big lake Taupo is ...

We got on the bus and there was about 15 of us in total, mixing English, Irish, American, Belgian, German, Mexican and Uruguayan! Pretty good mix!
