Hope you're all having a great season / new year. I've been untrusted to take a couple of relatives fishing.

Was thinking somewhere between Springfield and Cass, possibly Lake Lyndon. Not hunting big fish, just some easy fish (if there are any about). They will preferably be spin fishing, will have to reread the regs about how much that reduces the options. Any helpful pointers would be much appreciated.

ENtrusted*... freudian slip most likely!  Grin

the water at Jacksons looks very nice for a spin fish..... havent stopped and tried it YET ,we travel over that way every couple of months and other than a few fly flickers in spring creeks we dont see anyone.

Thanks mate, not intending to head that far in myself, as I'm following them in another car just for the fishing. Not sure if I should attempt an introduction into fly casting... "norwest breezes" metservice tells me  Grin

Did ya get to your usual Xmas river this year?  Cheesy Guess she'd be low and clear atm.

Lake Poerua, (not sure if that's what MD meant by Jacksons), the one time I did fish it heaps of browns but can't connect probably due to a lack of skill more than anything else. Not that  far  from the main road.

nope I was meaning the BIG clear river you cross less than a km from Jacksons township,youve been along side it for awhile but dont get near it untill then and a few times from there onwards.the cicadas were squaking in Ikimatua last week so a big floater could be order of day if wanted to chuck a fly....might even be worth doing with a bubble,two big hairy arsed cicada imitations at once has to be very tempting.

Thought I heard a cicada flare up briefly today. Other thing I was wondering given today's heat... water temp do you reckon is ethical to stop fishing at? I don't do any summer fishing so haven't thought about this much. Quite a few rivers around 20 deg now.

Turned out it was gusting 80kph norwesters, didn't reckon it was ethical to try showing them how (not to) cast a fly in that  Grin
