The lower Taieri River may be drift-shooted between Outram and Allanton. Launch a small rowboat, canoe or kayak at Outram bridge and drift down to Murray Road or to Allanton.

The river is best drifted on higher-than-normal levels. Use the edges to your advantage as a stealthy approach is needed. Ducks will often fly off well ahead or hide among willows and wait for you to pass before bursting out.

It is advisable not to drift-hunt early in the season to avoid disrupting hunters on riverside stands. Be aware of your obligations under the Firearms Act, and respect private property.
