Re: Prospecting a new River, Discovering the Awatere


There are dozens of them, not worth closing them and pissing off the farmers. The floods would close them anyway. Its legal within their resource consent, in the perfect river they would not be there but the farmers need the water and the minimal flow is reasonable. Just another challenge to trout fishing there.

The Awatere got up to 67 cubics during the flood, now its down to 30. Would probably be under 7 by next weekend. The Wairau peaked at 937 cubic which is a decent size flood.
