As far as a channel went it was hanging more on the south side, hopefully it will be more definate after this nice fresh comes right and then bring on the salmon fishing
Will keep the forum up to date to what i see go on down the mouth22/12/2010 at 5:57 am #16704
Sweet mate,will have a sniff around there myself late Jan..tightlines!!28/12/2010 at 4:06 am #16761
Holy Jesus, wont be fishing the waimac for a while, like 2000 cumecs!!!! and the macintosh is looking pretty vunerable as the torrent comes down, whole trees are like twigs, goes to show the immense force mother nature has, lapping ova in one point where they reapired it but its due to the rubbish, but nothing to major, hopefully all is good as i saw it at low tide28/12/2010 at 5:55 am #16767
The Rakaia peaked at 5735 cum they have just closed the bridge (water lapping over) house flooded by the over bridge. The river will still be rising at sh1 till about dark i think.28/12/2010 at 9:14 am #16770MiliwolfParticipant
Thats a big flood, the Wairau peaked at 2706 cubics. Should wash a lot of broom out to sea.
Buller peaked at 10539 cubics
Clarence is only 12.3 cubics
So the Kaikoura mountains must have missed the rain.30/12/2010 at 1:18 am #16788
Bye bye Didymo,the rivers needed a good clean out and that will certainly of happened,I’m guessing we will get a second bite of the cherry with the early run salmon because most of them would’ve been pushed back out to sea I’d say!!02/01/2011 at 6:21 am #16866

The main flow under the sh1 bridge is near the north bank for the first time in a long time. This will make access to it tricky but interesting.
