A good start to the day

I lost a lure around high tide after snagging it on a submerged log near the Spring Creek township, and was able to retrieve it without entering the water the next day around low tide. 

Over 11km inland from the mouth, the Wairau River is still affected by the tides.

I picked up a couple of empty bottles and a can that someone had left by the river. On my way to the recycling drop-off point, I decided to have a fish in the Wairau around the Tuamarina bridge. Been a while since I'd fished there.

Ended up landing a nice trout in some mixed currents almost under the bridge. Enjoyed by the family for dinner.
