    4 fish at macintoshs to 1.30pm. 2 rocks, 1boat and 1 point, which i was lucky enough to latch on to, a 12lb jack. a few lage ky around fight like salmon had to tell what you have as they are not jumping. the last one i released would have been 8 lb, wouldn’t come off the bottom and did a few long runs, a lot of fun.

    fish still around, even saw a couple porpoise today. was told 2 on the rocks and apparently one or two at the mouth. there were 2 onthe point along with a large foulhooked one safely released and 1 broken off, a boat had a good fish on for a long time before it was lost. not as many ky today.

    1 on the rocks, 2lost on point and 1 large mature jack foulhooked. the 2 lost were fresh fish, so still 1or2 coming through. still large ky chasing bait fish around. there was a small run lasting from the 14april last year for 2 weeks, interesting to see if it happens this year- were mainly kaiapoi fish.

    i was on the point yesterday for a few hours as the tide went out. didnt see any caught from the rocks, there were about 6 ky caught at the point and i was lucky enough to land a nice salmon estimated to be about 20 lbs. i didnt see it but while i was bringing my fish in another salmon was caught in a boat. a big thanks to anyone that helped with my fish.

    spent the day with a group of salmon anglers and their families finclipping at montrose-did about 73,000. had a look at the trap, about 60 fish in it so far. some are or were when they came into the river well over 30lb- amazing sight. makes all the effort by F&G and the volunteers worthwhile.
