    1200 cumec fresh in the river this last 24 hours, more NW forecast so there is a good chance the river may be still dirty early next week, if not it will have received a massive rearranging at least.

    I was at the Rakaia River mouth on Sunday and the mouth is way down at the northern huts end – maybe 4km walk from South Rakaia Huts. There is a very long lagoon at present.

    [b:1vmrm82z]Rangitata River[/b:1vmrm82z]. I heard from someone who was there (Monday 5 Dec) that two good sized salmon were caught from the surf on the south side of the Rangitata River mouth. The river is high and dirty but the surf was good.

    Thats a coincidence yellowfin, was just talking to our local fisheries ranger, who told me there was a 20lb and 25 lb salmon weighed at the Rangitata.

    Hi Mal, Thanks for that. Our spy has proven to be reliable!

    Has anyone else heard rumours of a 35lb fish taken from the Waimak last Monday?
