Spent time at the Diversion and Wairau river mouths… KY still present at both. The diversion is by far the most popular mouth at the moment Yesterday I counted around 20 moderately-small KY. , casting room can be a problem. I rarely see more then 2 people at the Wairau Bar.
The mouth of the diversion is narrow and fast, the mouth of the wairau has not changed much. I predict the KY stay around until the first big flood of the winter or frost.
Went for a dive in Port Underwood, There are large school of undersized moki about. Could be worth a fish at night off the rocks.
