Sorry I was not down there, check Fred's Custom Tackle Facebook page as they often post water conditions most mornings.

 Just came back from Sat.- Sunday fishing. Had 2 wild males to the shore(11 & 12lb) and lost one in the middle river :). Did not see any other fish caught.

  • Fish ethically, always....

Water was ugly at the crossing when we drove over at 5:30 pm, weather was nasty all day today.

A river is never quite silent; it can never, of its very nature, be quite still; it is never quite the same from one day to the next. It has its own life and its own beauty, and the creatures it nourishes are alive and beautiful also. Perhaps fishing is only an excuse to be near rivers. - Haig-Brown

fished from tamihia to ranger run today. The water got uglier as the day went on, at about 2:15 seen a huge chunk of clay and trees fall in the river from the top of a clay slide between allison and tamihai  :o watch those clay banks, there givin way, and slippery as hell everywhere around them. Above the prison camp the water was mint, with about 3/4 feet of vis and a deep green colour but a tab bit high. Seen a nice one landed on the other side of me, along with 2 more lost. I had a nice buck on but lost it as i was trying to tail it. Poured rain and snow all day, and to top it all off my dads reel broke not even 2 hours into the day  :-\ Luckily later that day we meet up with a friend who had a spare reel, he got 2 in the morning at lickman.

No wind at the present, visibility had slipped from last night, I thought the visibility was about 18 inches. Saw no fish caught.

Thanks Chris. Would the water clarity be better above Allison?

It maybe will be above the slides, maybe the conditions will improve this afternoon below the slides too.  :-\

There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot
