    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?

    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.

    I recon its because of the slightly warmer weather, keeping more insects about for long etc

    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.

    3lb brown from the middle of the rakaia sunday.

    I have heard people are using those really small rapalas on their fly rods. :shock: Makes sense they have the best action but are hard to cast (I’d rather use a wooly bugger though or a damsel)

    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!
