Tips for Golden Bay?

Post by Whio » Sat Dec 19, 2020 8:57 pm

I'm holidaying in Golden Bay (Puponga) between Xmas and New Years. I'm wondering if someone would be kind enough to suggest somewhere I could spend a day fishing with a reasonable chance of success please or even would like to join me for a day out. I'm not after any secret spots and am more than happy to return the favour if anyone is up my way (Central Nth Is) in the future. Please PM me.Thanks heaps, Dave.


Some of my life I spend fly fishing, the rest I just waste!

Hell bro, smack bank in the kingie county. Take an 8# (as a minimum) and be ready to have your heart rate go to through the roof. I wished I could be there now!

If you need details, pm me and il let you know what I know.

Cheers gents. Might give it a crack although I prefer the freshwater environs.

Anton stuck a video on YouTube that shows the location and how to. It's been doing the rounds so isn't hard to find, hang on, here it is: https://youtu.be/EmqwVxbcWr4

OP how did you get on? I know this is an old thread. My dad lives opposite the pupu springs river and I fished the area in December also (freshwater) and really struggled. The fish numbers are very low according to the fish and game data unfortunately
