I went to the Waimak last night (Tuesday) at 8:30, and there was what appeared to be a net across half of the river (judging by the two buoys in a line from the river bank), on the southern side where the main channel is, just before Brooklands lagoon. A boat came and checked it at 10:30pm. Surely there’ll be salmon getting caught in there at this time of the year (maybe that’s what they’re hoping for). I was under the impression that nets in rivers have to be parallel to the bank. Surely blatant plundering like that isn’t allowed..
