Re: Salmon Season 2007 / 2008


Good Friday was a boomer at the mouth of the Waimak with too many fish to count taken before lunch, both north & south banks firing well. Saturday tapered off considerably with only a handful caught even though conditions were perfect. Sunday the same, the gut, fishing the best but still not great no.s landed, although a few fish lost, on the north side anyway, the sea very stirred up outside the mouth though. Very large strong fighting Kahawai have made an appearance again after an absence of about a month although not in great no.s. Hoping tommorrow( Easter Mon) will see things pick up again, prob be my last full-on foray to the mouth for the season if things dont improve. Maybe a few upriver trips left in the season, anglers I have talked to report good no.s of fish upriver, but not so many landed, so… might almost be time to put the Salmon rods away for another season.
