Re: salmon trip Chch


I went to the ohau A canal 3 months ago, caught just one small salmon (2.5lb), but saw alot of fish in the shallows criusing. Hooked and lost about 5 fish spinning with tassies, so next time going to try bait fishing to try and get proper hookups. Once again we saw small fish everywhere – browns, Rainbows, and some small salmon. If you are looking to target salmon in the winter the canals are probably the best option close to christchurch.
