    Hi, I am heading to Christchurch and riving down to Wanaka next week was supposed to be a ski holiday but the snow looks terrible with none on the horizon so hoping for some advice on where I might find some trout. If anyone is willing to share some advice or locations it would be greatly appreciated

    Clutha River or one of the lakes in town might be your best option as most if not all rivers will be closed.

    Have fished Clutha at outfall from lake (Dean’s Bank) and mouth of Mutukituki River with success during snow trips to Wanaka. There’s a good Flylife article from a few years ago about fishing the river mouth which is what I’ve experienced when there.
