    I’d be keen to hear when they show up up river HIPP. I haven’t jet boated up there yet and could mix a short trip with a few hours casting.

    A nice 15lber my mate got from Mackies last Sunday. I got fed up not catching anything so we went for a hoon up river and found some quiet water to park up to get a pic and clean the fish.

    Subjohn’s 19.5lb from last Saturday, he’s still grinning today :grin:

    I pulled this one out of the Rakaia gut on the 28th of December. Thought it was a half decent searun until I skull dragged it onto the bank and realized it was a little salmon. It weighed 8lb and tasted better than any other salmon I’ve eaten.

    been informed that fish were caught at the pylons saturday and by the old bridge as well the usual spots lower down, seems to have been a good weekend allround, great to see. rainfall at the pass27.5 to 7pm. will need alot to put colour into the river after being dry for 5 weeks.

    Some nice fish there fellas,
    I fished the Waimak Gorge again late afternoon till dusk, nothing seen, hooked my first fish on the new rod and fisrt fish on braid….well, I think I was a bit keen with my strike and just about pulled its lips off, the trout, lept klean out of the water and through the hook, it must have been a bit shocked or sore as it flipped around a few times and lept clean out of the water again, all in quick sucession lol, so glad I got to get a bit of the feel for braid and the new rod on a trout rather than wasting an oppotunity on a salmon…..Ill be back up there tonight, when I left the river was at the same level and no colour at that time, though could be diferant now,. cheers, Hipp
