:| As a general rule I’d say any medium to large south island trout river that flows into the sea will have sea runs present. During spring and early summer concentrating angling effort on the lower river and tidal reaches is probably the safest option as this is where baitfish will be more readily available to the trout, then as the summer moves into autumn, the fish move upstream on their spawning migration and may be found many miles from the ocean. :|
