After having a tough fishing on my home river on Friday, it was kind of hard to choose which river I should go fishing on Sunday. There were a couple of options came through in my mind. And also, because of the Easter holiday week, the river water flow web site was not kept updating as usual. It was unable to check the river flows.
And then, next day, on Easter Monday, I went back to the river again to fish different part of the middle reach half a day.
I have been here only once before.
The first fish was a good strong one.
The river was kind of quiet till warm northerly came down. But once it started to blow around 4pm, I got lots of bites.
Unfortunately, I dropped a couple of good ones...
But I could land this beauty after that.
Really nice autumn colour fish.
Can't stop taking photos.
Just keep getting bites!
Got a good bag, 8 fish in 5 hours fishing.
I think that Easter is one of the best time of the year for fishing in NZ as long as the weather is good and it was the same in the North Island as well. I fished well on both rivers and lakes in Rotorua in the North two years ago. The problem is a lot of people out there because it's a long weekend and you may get annoying traffic jam. But less people here, in Otago means less annoying which is good!
