Fishing spot no 1 Aug 29, 2014
My favourite spot

We originally bypassed this river as it can change in height a lot as they release water from lake TeAnau to Manipouri

But in recent years we have begun to fish this river and have had good results

We used to camp beside the river, but nowadays they no longer permit that so we are forced to camp in one of the local camping grounds

Best fished when the river is low

There is a lot of didymo now present in the water which is unfortunate

There is often an evening rise where the fish go crazy just at dusk
Almost too big for the pan Rainbo…
