Re: salmon season 2012-13


Spent the day on the Rakaia. Jet boated from Southbridge right up to about 2km short of the pylons fishing along the way. Low and clear water conditions and dint spot a fish all day.

Apart from a bunch of guys fishing the lagoon where the mouths came in and also the first pool or two up from the lagood there werent many people around.

Have there been many reports from the Rakaia or has it died off a bit?

I was planning on spending Mon – Thurs down there but have changed my plans after today. Might check out some other rivers, Need to make use of the leave pass from the wife for fishing next week and from what I saw today I suspect i would have been wasted my time on the lower Rakaia.
