Angling Report: Nov 2002 Lake Brunner Fly Fishing Report

11th November

Overall, a good month for both weather and fishing. Water temperatures climbed steadily, and rivers & lakes were mainly low and clear with trout in good condition.

Alistair Eykyn and wife Anna spent 3 days in the Lake Brunner region, including a camp-out on the shores of the lake. On a visit to the Ahaura, they each landed a fish of 4.5 lbs on a short stretch of water where the wall of gorse forced us to use a roll cast.

28th November

Larry Bradley returned for an opportunity to try out the November fishing in good weather - last year's was not nearly so pleasant! 

Larry holds up a nice Slaty Creek troutand defies gravity in the upper Crooked River to release a 6lb trout in the big rock pools.

28th November

The end of the month saw a "little" rain, especially in the Nth Island, and Trapper was glad to escape down to the sunny West Coast of the south Island for his first taste of NZ wild brown trout action.

Trapper (aka John Juola) spent a few days fishing our local lakes, after stint in the Nth island. Some of our fish were a little hard to hold on to...

This one posed nicely before being released...
