Have a look on the complete anglers hompage at the moment, pics and more videos about the canals.20/07/2012 at 12:53 am #21305MalParticipant
Thats a great vid, I bet the canals will be picket fence for the next few weeks.Hopefully the fisheries inspectors will be out in force as well25/07/2012 at 11:41 pm #21324
looks like the canals are going to be busy this weeked, 3′ gulps and 1/8 jig heads are selling out, lots of talk about the canals at the H&F shop today.30/07/2012 at 9:52 am #21333
my 10lber from Ohau. 10 min fight, not much action.
I made the mistake of taking a far to casual approach with a much bigger and stronger fish. fought like a small salmon at first and as soon as I got a glimpse of it, it smoked the hell out of me, taking about 50 yard of line before rubbing my leader on something. I estimate about 15lb rainbow, but very fit, not a lazy slug like the 10lber.05/08/2012 at 6:01 am #21365
Went to the canals today with my Father and he caught his first Large canal fish, A estimated 20lb Rainbow.
I caught nothing but had a big take which destroyed my large pink glowbug.18/08/2012 at 5:24 am #21430
Up to the canals again today, very quiet due to the lack of current so went around to the eastern shore of Lake Tekapo and caught 5 small Trout and lost a good sized Rainbow.19/08/2012 at 8:41 pm #21447MalParticipant
Is there anyway of knowing what time the spillways are going to be open/flowing??19/08/2012 at 8:57 pm #21448
There’s info about the flow of the Tekapo spillway on the Ecan website, Not sure if spill goes down the river or the canal though.
I find if there’s no flow your wasting your time on the canals, well the Tekapo one anyway.01/09/2012 at 7:53 am #21500
Called into the canals this afternoon on the way home and watched a guy land a very fat 8lb brown. I had a few cast with some new soft plastics but no takes.02/09/2012 at 3:59 am #21505MiliwolfParticipant
Went for a mid-day fish in the Taylor, saw a reasonable number of trout. The recent floods have washed away most of the weed and the river is looking very good. Even same nice gravel sections has been exposed. Caught a couple of feisty sea runs.02/09/2012 at 9:20 am #21516baitmanParticipant
PB for me a 9.5lb brown mid river rakaia.
Awesome looking critter released after some snaps02/09/2012 at 10:31 am #21519MiliwolfParticipant
