Re: Salmon Season -2011/2012


Fished the Rakaia mouth this morning. Put the boat in at the huts about 5.30am and went to the north side for a look but the wind was howling so I shot up river about 5km and saw one landed. My little boat doesn’t handle the rough stuff too well and I took a few waves over the front of the boat on the way back down the lagoon, a couple went straight down the front of my jacket and waders which made fishing bloody cold for the rest of the morning. Gotta get a bigger boat   :)  There were a couple caught at the mouth while I was there, both about 12-15lb. I might have a look again tomorrow either before or after work.
