    Amazing how these ‘ reports ‘ surface, the Rangi is VERY low and clear and the fish are just not running up the river. Saturday saw lots of barracuda :mad: and kahawai hooked at the mouth but you would be lucky to see 20 salmon taken all day including in the dark. Of note was the large Orca and calf travelling north just off the breakers

    very funny too how soon people jump on here and water down any possibility that there could have been good runs at some stage so there isnt a mad rush of anglers to their river :lol:

    hurunui surf would be my pick of the rivers at the moment :)

    fish will still head up river in low flows everyone… ive stood on the bridge just up from hurunui mouth many a time when its very low and clear and watched anything from 2 up to 50 + fish going through

    How easy is it to reach the mouth of the hurunui, and how close can one drive in a 4wd?
