Our Clinton correspondent writes :—“ Iu the Kuriwao stream on the Ist inst. good baskets were the order of the day. D. Chisholm got twenty-one fish, C. Laing thirteen, S. Roseveare twelve, and W, Turnbull eight fish. Many others got very fine baskets also. Mr W, M'Lean got 151b in the Waiwera (upper waters), all good fish. Since then excellent fishing has been obtained in the Kuriwao. Mr Bagley killed a fine trout weighing sJlb, and Master Hay killed one of 41b. Mr W. Riggs, an amateur, on his first day killed seven nice fish. Fish are very plentiful, and good reports are coming from all quarters. The success has made many who never fished before take out licenses, and there is some talk of clearing off the obstruction and scrub on the side of the river. If that is carried out it means grand fishing for the local men, for that portion of the river is quite alive with trout.”
