Went for a 'quiet fish' in the south pine, launching from Cash' Crossing.
Got there and it looked like it was flowing pretty fast, but it was a half an hour drive from home so I thought lets give it a go.
The bit that is normally only an inch under water is now 6 foot deep and pumping! got fired out of the narrow bit after going over some rapids and pretty hectic white water. SOoo much fun!!
Fished for 3-4 hours and got 4 x 20-30cm bass. All released to fight another day.
Now to try and paddle back up the narrow bit to Cash's crossing..
Got 3/4 of the way up but got to a spot that was running way too fast. I was paddling flat out just to keep stationary, so made my way over to the bank and dragged the yak through the bush for a bit.
Had no choice to drag the kayak through some more water which turned out to be head deep. Good thing I had the life jacket on!
Bit of a mad swim across, and up the bank then im at the car : )
Thank f@ck for that!!
Lost a plugger during the swimming leg, but all in all a wicked days fishing/yakking : D
