in the last season more salmon were taken in the waimak than the Rakaia. to fish middle reaches of the mak you just basically drive along the stop bank on the north side and go in at of the numbered groynes looking for suitable water when you find a good area you then have a reference point for your next visit. if you don’t mind fishing where other people do, below the railway bridge produced a lot of fish last year but fishing at night can get crowded as the searunners are there currently. macintoshes is always good if you have limited time.
