    Fished upper Rakakia Saturday morning, caught none. But heard of a few being caught. Fished Rangitata Saturday evening but saw none caught, but heard 16 or something was caught earlier in the day. Sunday morning saw 5 caught on South Side and 1 on the North Side. Really struggle to see how people find Salmon angling enjoyable.

    Had I not caught anything last season (my first chasing salmon) I think I would have given up. I am lucky enough to have caught one this year and I am still out there although Saturday morning had me wondering why. I was at the Opihi on the north side with about 10 others. There would have been 30 odd people on the south and there were tangles everywhere. You would think when 2 or 3 guys have hooked people on the other side others wouldnt cast over the top but no they cant wait 30 seconds for the lines to be cleared out of the way. Anyway, that aside I will still keep chasing as there really is no better fish to catch in the South Island. Patience pays off as they say.

    Isn’t it good to have a few challenges in life. :-)

    Saw 2 landed and 2 lost south side Rakaia this morning.
    Fairly small ones, the one I got was around 9 lbs.

    There were more people fishing the north side than the south but I didn’t notice what they got.

    I caught my first and only Salmon as a bi-catch when trout fishing in the Wairau. Went 7.7lb. That was 4-5 years back and since then only targeted them twice. Once in the Clarence for a half a hour, then the latest trip in south Canterbury.

    good to hear Kevo. Hope you pick up a couple. Are there many holes you can access via 4wd or do you really need a kayak or jet boat ?
