Rivers in Spate

I often see fishermen in dispare when rivers are in spate here in New Zealand. Yes sight fishing will not be an option, however as an avid salmon fisherman I really don't mind swinging streamers through pools. To my surprise last time I was caught out on a backcountry fishing trip and the rivers rose considerably I had some great success swinging streamers and it seams that these conditions will sometimes bring out the larger trout to feed.

Please enjoy this short video of a couple of trout I caught in a big dirty river.
