The rain last weekend disrupted the fishing for a few days, but it looks to be fine for the last day of the season tomorrow.
Once again, what rain that fell across the region has had little effect on river flows, but it has certainly dropped the water temperature.
There has been a nip in the air in the mornings recently which has started to drop water temperatures but they are still above normal for the time of year.
The sun is shining as I tap this out on my computer which bodes well for the weekend as the little rain that is forecast will do no harm to your favourite stream.
For those who like chasing trout that are feasting on cicadas, the recent weather has been a bit of a setback.
As I write the rain has arrived and more is forecast, quite a lot more, so chances are weekend fishing options will not be great.
The rain towards the end of the week has had little effect on rivers and streams so things look good for the weekend. The southerly change on Thursday and the rise in pressure will have us lying in...

As I tap away at my computer the sun is shining but it is only 11degC outside, which is a little chilly for this time of year.
Most rivers and streams are above summer level at the moment, but that is not necessarily a bad thing from the fishing point of view.
Most waters in the region are fishable and should remain so over the next few days as there is little rain in the forecast. My picks would be the Taieri throughout its length, the Pomahaka, Mataura...
