    Taking the kayak out tomorrow,planning on paddling from the main rd bridge down to the rakaia mouth.Hopefully the big floods will have created some primo pools!!

    Went to the rakaia today,suprised that it was still dirty as it was flowing below 140 yesterday,didn’t bother launching the kayak but did see a few fish in a nice pool just up from the mouth.There were plenty of guys down there so perhaps they all made the same mistake I did.The ecan river flows site says that the rakaia is flowing at 65cumecs!!!..must be an error somewhere,surely!!!“>

    yup my guess is about 250 cum I had a scout about above the bridge some nice looking holes didn’t see any fish though I rekon it’ll be a week before they are up my end.

    I went looking for a trout tonight the rakaia is looking better ( I would fish it for salmon) the flow is still high but I think you could find some good pools now to have a crack in and when its running like this new fish will be entering your pool all the time.
    IMO 230 cum down to 180 cum is when the salmon are most active (fish all day) Below that I don’t fish past midday.Mid river fishing.
    Also there was a bulldozer below the bridge today pushing around shingle on the northern side so that might change things too.

    Have spent this last few days blinging out some old zeddies,ticers and wedges…let’s hope the rivers come right soon and that a few fish have decided to run so I can try them out!!“>
