Just been doing a bit of research on trout fishing regulations on the internet and areas like the Kaiapoi actually allow bait fishing for them… Another area where bait is allowed are the Tekapo canals (I know that some find “fishing” over there a bit low but it seems to be a pretty convenient spot for families to go…). I’ve seen people mentioning the use of shrimps as bait in both these places. Couldn’t find out if they were referring to freshwater shrimps or what… Anyone knows?
Also, when they say you can use bait for trout they mention bait as being:
Natural worm or worms
Natural fish (excluding fish ova, or any portion of a fish, or shellfish (mollusc)
Uncoloured bread dough
Any scented lure constructed of, or treated with, elements that have chemical attractant properties”
So the shrimps mentioned before are definitely not supermarket shrimps? Anyone knows what a “natural” crustacean would be?
Was just wondering as I might give bait fishing a goal, besides spinning.

Have you tried or seen anyone trying soft baits over there? Don’t know where to get worms so thought the soft bait imitation might do?19/06/2011 at 9:25 pm #18358
I havent used soft baits or seen them used in the Tekapo canal. I have seen them catch fish in the ohau canal down by Twizel so I cant see a reason why they wont catch fish in the Tekapo canal as well.
I suspect a lot of the fish in the Tekapo canal are tackle shy As I have used spinners many times and have never had a touch and as soon as swicth to bait I start getting bites.20/06/2011 at 3:08 am #18361AnonymousInactive
The worms you’re talking about are just your common garden worms?20/06/2011 at 4:02 am #18362
Yes. the best place to find them is under stuff, Rocks,logs etc. Or failing that sometimes if you stick a garden fork in your lawn and wiggle it around the worms will come to the top.20/06/2011 at 5:17 am #18363AnonymousInactive
