...and another couple of years another Wellingtonion chases Paratya :) I went to the Silverstream Wier today between 9pm and 11ish pm... Actually there was so much water coming through the river that we couldn't try the actual wier and walked to the left where there's a stream affluent to the river. There were no shrimps there. We went all around the stream and a stationary pool and no shrimp. We found a few white bare, snails, oxygen weed, and some other tiny things. I will go back there when it hasn't rain in a few days to try the wier but before that I'll likely go to Paraparaumu and try the Otararua park suggested above.
