Re: how to catch salmon


Cheers Burkefish. Saw that a new version of salmon fever is out, doh don’t have cash for that after forking out on buying my own rod & reel. Nothing fancy just cheaper than most but better than using my mates hand me down trout rod. I went for a walk around rakaia river SH1 bridge about 2kms each side trying to spot these ‘salmon holes’ but wasn’t really sure if i could spot any, tried rakaia since its mostly the river shown on youtube vids.
I wanna try something closer to chch, anyone give some advice on fishing the middle reaches of Waimak?
