    saw 2 at macintoshs, 1 where i fish. the other was with a person on a kayak, playing the fish, went to net it got it in the net and capsised. came up still holding on to fish on his rod. we sent a boat to assist, first thing they did was net the fish, got him back up, said he only lost his backup rod. when he came over to us he was given a mintie. would be great on video, don’t if his camera recorded it hope it was waterproof.

    New to this forum, ex Timaruvian salmon fisher now living in Nelson, was planning on heading over to Wairau River, does anybody know whether any salmon have been caught/sighted as yet, understand that they’re usually in the river sometime Feb/Mar? Also, where’s the best place to head, is it down the mouth or somewhere above the bridge where diversion and river meet, any thoughts a help. Cheers.

    macintoshs is slow as well, there are plenty of fish splashing around just not taking which is about the ‘norm’ this time in the season. know of 2 today, 1 in the morning and a 22lb fish about 5.30pm. i left about an hour later so don’t know after that. will be there first thing in the morning, the predicted sw change just might cool the water to bring on a take or two.

    usually the last week in feb to first week in march,main run starts, when fish start taking in clear water means things are starting. the fish i got was a jack, very small roe,could indicate an extended season. hope so.

    Thats good to know, was there last year and abit earlier. Hopefully when I get there next thursday there might be some around. I spent the whole 12months gettin bagged by everyone for no fish after 8 days fishing. Its time to re correct the record.
