A peek at the Wairau before the new season starts

Yesterday I had a look for trout in a few spots in the Wairau River and Wairau Diversion.

A track through the trees below the Diversion Bridge.
I only managed to spot one trout near one of the areas photographed. I felt rather good about having seen one – it's better than none.

Looking upstream to the Diversion Bridge.
The mid/lower Wairau River's fishing season is year-round, so I had a few casts yesterday, and went back again today to the spot I saw the one trout. No luck, and nothing spotted today.

Standing below the Ferry Bridge, near the Spring Creek township.
I'm looking forward to getting back up the river again now that the weather's warming up.
