Might be heading down to canty in about three weeks, I know next to nothing about high country lake winter fishing, but keen to give it a try. So would Coleridge be the best one to check out?12/06/2011 at 8:28 pm #18310
Went up to coleridge the other night, fished with lumos. lots of fish about, caught 9 . The biggest was a 8and1/4 rainbow jack and a hen of 7lbs. All fish where over 4lb except a salmon of 3lbs. The fish this year are in the best nick i have ever seen. Fat and big.
Darker the night better the fishing imo.14/06/2011 at 12:08 am #18316
I recon its because of the slightly warmer weather, keeping more insects about for long etc18/06/2011 at 2:41 am #18340
Not my latest catch but a write up from one of my mates:19/06/2011 at 5:38 am #18350
Went up to the Tekapo canal this afternoon and cought nice 2lb rainbow. Also saw a huge trout in the shallows would have been 15lb plus.26/06/2011 at 7:50 am #18378

Been catching quite a few trout on Rapala’s recently. Also got one on the Fly rod when I took it out for a play.
I am always quite surprised that the float does not scare the trout when fishing with that method. I have tried it a couple of times but back before I knew how to fish nymphs and track trout properly.02/08/2011 at 8:44 am #18477
3lb brown from the middle of the rakaia sunday.
I have heard people are using those really small rapalas on their fly rods. Makes sense they have the best action but are hard to cast (I’d rather use a wooly bugger though or a damsel)03/08/2011 at 5:46 am #18482

true interesting concept though . Whats next? jigging nymphs under a sliding dry fly (now theres a thought). or casting live baits with a floating line. Gotta love fishing eh!08/08/2011 at 6:19 am #18492
Fished the canals this afternoon, Cought a 4lb brown plus a small rainbow.
