[size=84:2xttsudc]Hi there Rakaia and Waimakariri anglers,[/size:2xttsudc][/color:2xttsudc]
[color=black:2xttsudc][size=84:2xttsudc]The Central Plains Water scheme proposes to take up to 40 cubic metres of water per second from the Waimakariri, and the same again from the Rakaia River.

In decades past salmon anglers would have been conducting protest marches over such a major threat to their fishery! How times have changed.

Make no mistake about it, the proposed Central Plains Water scheme will have a disastrous impact on trout and salmon fishing in the Waimakariri and Rakaia Rivers.
