SOCIAL REPORT 2015/2016
Well another season has gone and some might think it was one we might choose to forget. With only 35 fish weighed in for the season from the Rangitata and 85 last year it was not that good.
Orari faired better with around 50 being caught. Opihi had around 40plus from reports of people that fished there. I did hear that a 25lb salmon was taken there.
9.5kgs was the heaviest weighed in from the Rangitata and 7kgs from the Orari which was a fin clipped salmon.
There were 3 fin clipped salmon weighed in from the Rangitata. I know myself of 2 at the Orari. No reports of fin clipped salmon from the Orari.
Sad to see that no juniors weighed in fish this season so hopefully this coming season will see more, might make a point of taking my grandson out, it would be great for him to win a trophy that his father won a few years back.
It was great to see the turn out for fin clipping with people from Rangitata, Orari and Opihi all helping out. A big thank you to everyone who attended.
I would like to thank the weigh-in centres, Bill & Evelyn Whipp, bach 66 at the Rangitata and Gas Alley in Temuka.
All we can hope for now is a better run of salmon this coming season.
