got a 5lb brown out of the middle reaches of the rakaia today and did an autopsy cause I wanted to know the same thing.
The stomach had about 8 what appeared to be stonefly nymphs about 10-12 mm in length and bugger all else.
The small ticer she took must have looked like christmas.
everthing have read or heard about nymphing below the gorge being a waste of time is going to tested now.
Anyone else tried it?18/07/2010 at 11:01 am #15764

True, but they will still take the same flies. Also due to mulletman saying he’s fishing between the bridges there isn’t much insect activity there and assuming he’s spinning, they eat the same as they do in the summer.14/08/2010 at 1:38 am #15860
yeh a great place for trout in winter is lake daniels in the lewis pass14/08/2010 at 11:15 am #15863

I use to go up to Lake Daniels a bit, normally around the season opening, the rainbows could be quite lean sometimes tho
never had any problem catching them spinning, fluro pink tazzys fished the best for us10/03/2012 at 1:22 am #20562
various nymphs, little kids, bullies, just what ever they can get really
