Spring Snow Storm in Athol, Mataura River, and Kingston on Lake Wakatipu

Well our local Southland Rivers got a nice top up on September 11, with a Solid Snowstorm, at least 20cm around Kingston and Athol etc.

The whitebait patties have still arrived in Invercargill though!! Yum.

Only 18 days till the New Season opens, and I can't wait to get back there, come rain, SNOW or shine :D

The Browns are Back in Town

Since the 6th of September I've seen the Brown Trout return to cruising the Lake edges, reclaiming that territory from the Rainbow trout.

I've been catching a few at good SPOTS,  and then I encountered a third kind of fish... 
the Rare Southern Blue Trout!

Have a look at this ones gorgeous colour on the gill plates... :D

Tight Lines!
