Re: Otago Salmon – south of the Waitaki


Good weekend on the Waitaki. My old man and his mate have landed 5 Salmon this weekend…ranging between 12-20lb. I fished the Waitaki at Duntroon and lost a smallish salmon on silver toby, then jumped in jet boat with old man at bridge and landed what looked like a 3-4lb salmon but turned out to be a hen trout. Had similar colour to a salmon but the flesh and mouth gave it away. Must be a old sea-runner.

Hopefully the Taieri gets a run going. Gonna try some silver tobys on trout gear from the Kayak me thinks.
