    Hi everyone…. After fish the Mak for the last 5 seasons looks like i’ll get a decent amount of time both mid reaches and mouth of the Rakaia as I have shifted to Hororata. Have already looked at Steels Rd access but river has been up too high to get down into the bed proper. Was at the gorge bridge this a.m and the colour can be best described as the Same as a David Bain Cardi that be shit brown. But a real good spell of flushing these rivers out is a great thing. Cant wait to get the gear out and chase hard. Tight lines :)

    Well all the salmon rivers are going up and down with massive flows and huge amounts of rain in the back country.This will surely change the channels and perhaps create a few good holes.The question is what will happen to all the young smolts in the rivers systems at the moment?

    big floods tend to help smolt transition to salt water better because of the large volume of fresh water flowing out also discoloured water should protect them a bit as they adapt to the new environment.

    Yeah The Tekapo Canal is fishing really well, most people had their bag limits of Salmon yesterday. A shame they have closed the canal road though as you have to go the long way now.

    Hey guys

    i’m looking at heading up to the Tekapo canals on Friday and was wondering how you access these canals as I have heard the main canal road is locked?

    Yeah is closed at the Tekapo end, You have to drive along the highway towards Twizel Then turn onto Hayman road then on to Tekapo canal road and the road is open for 6km. best fishing is at the end of the stilling pond near the spill gates.

    Are you guys catching salmon on trout rods? Must be a lot of fun on light gear. Occasionally they are caught in the Waitaki on trout gear.
