Re: Salmon Season -2011/2012


I can confirm the above, it was shoulder to shoulder on Waimak mouth north side yesterday morning (Wed), but only a few people on the south side. We watched 2 guys turn up on the other side, catch a couple of fish each, then bugger off after an hour or so – bastards! Hard to tell exactly what they were catching as there were a lot of kowhai being caught, but definitely at least 2 salmon.
I fished from 7-10am on the north side and saw maybe 5 salmon caught, lots of kowhai, and I caught a barracuta as did someone else. Salmon fishing was definitely quieter than Tuesday. Last nights rain may have helped though.. might go out this arvo…
