A fast fish on the Hawea river simply out of town produced 2 good fat wee rainbow trout for Louie. Hes actually enjoying his fly connecting and had actually simply ended up connecting a number of woolly bugger jig heads to get deep and cover some fish he had actually seen from a high bank over the school vacations a week previously. Purple and black and rusty brown were the colours he ‘d selected to connect them in and they both produced fish!
The river was dammed in 1958 and is under the control of Contact energy.Lake Hāwea is New Zealand’s ninth biggest lake. The only flat land around the lake is at its southern end, surrounding its outflow into the Hawea river, a brief tributary of the Clutha river, which it goes into near the little municipality of Albertown. The lake uses exceptional water sports and fly fishing (brown trout, rainbow trout and salmon) and the surrounding countryside has video game such as Red Deer, Wild Goats, Chamois, Thar, Quail, ducks, and Geese. The location has a relatively dry environment and can be exceptionally hot in the summertime.
Over the cold weather the lake level varies based on the need for power which sometimes can see the Hawea river level dramatically increase inconveniencing to fish for extended periods of time. Throughout the greater circulations access to ideal fishing water ends up being minimal and the river can be really inflamed and unsafe.
