Wairau River Salmon Fishing Rules for 2015

The rules have changed for fishing for salmon in the Wairau River. In the 2011-2012 Fish & Game regulations, the salmon season wasn't clearly defined. I found out it was all year, after confirming with Fish & Game.

The latest (2014-2015) salmon season as defined by the regulations booklet sees the season now limited to be in line with the standard trout season that covers most rivers, 1 October - 30 April.
