    Conway can be excellent at times.Just like birdlings the beach ,good deep water in close.Last year I had a couple of cracker days there.Good big rig and lots of eles.Saw some photos of a torpedo catch there last april.On one set they got 17 huge eles,they had a big job dealing with that many fish.Like anywhere,you have to strike it on a good day.Good luck.

    I would avoid nape nape , many many years ago it was good , not so now ….Amberly is improving , it used to be awesome , but went dead for many years …

    Conway flats can be full on ….too many fish to be enjoyable lol ……definately the pick of the spots north of CHCH …without going all the way to Kaikoura

    Only ever fished Nape Nape once, got nothing but from memory Aaron got a nice Ky tho. Heard of good sized sharks being caught at conway as well.

    In my limited experience they are about the same, although there is a nice Moki reef opposite road end north of the river.

    2 quick questions, can i drive[car] right to the end of road or is it 4wd vehicle needed and bait, is squid suitable

    Yeah, a car would be fine. Its a typical gravel road.

    Squid is a good general bait, most species would eat it. But I personally would also take Prawn and a fish, something like pilchard.
