    Have probably 95% Rainbows but a mix of wild & released fish. F&G put some fish into the river couple of years ago ,some of the trout are very orange & more the color of salmon.
    The 4 kg sawdust is 2 kg of each Manuka & Pohutukawa ,that's a 12 month supply.

    well, after two gloriously fine days, the local stream and the Ngaruroro and the Tutaekuri look a lot tidier...however, as I write it is TEEMING again
