Area Report: Canterbury, Rakaia River and Hurunui River

Peter Langlands reports in the February NZ Fishing News magazine that the Hurunui river-mouth should be a good option for salmon at the moment, and 'some guts on the lower Rakaia, just above the lagoon' have been fishing well.

Apparently the best catches have been made in the morning, 'often before 10am, as the salmon often take lures more readily in cooler temperatures'.
