I never knew it was a problem till i read the sign one day at the lake shore at birdlings then i started reading the newsletter put out each month at birdlingsflat.net.nz and realised it’s been going on for quite some time and they still haven’t done a decent channel yet and are still working on it at the bottom of the peninsula as i’ve seen the machinery up there, they’ve had the original mouth open a few times i’ve been there but from what i’ve read it doesn’t really help. The added benefit is that when they do end up with something decent it will bring back alot more fish and even whales as i was reading because of all the extra nutrients and food flowing in and out.

Back to mullet i might have to go throw the line in across the road today in the avon and see if there’s anything about, although i highly doubt it.
