rumor is at the waimak mouth today, 100 anglers on nth side and only 5 fish but on the South side 2 anglers and 3 fish!
can anyone confirm this or update it…..22/02/2012 at 9:16 pm #20451
I can confirm the above, it was shoulder to shoulder on Waimak mouth north side yesterday morning (Wed), but only a few people on the south side. We watched 2 guys turn up on the other side, catch a couple of fish each, then bugger off after an hour or so – bastards! Hard to tell exactly what they were catching as there were a lot of kowhai being caught, but definitely at least 2 salmon.
I fished from 7-10am on the north side and saw maybe 5 salmon caught, lots of kowhai, and I caught a barracuta as did someone else. Salmon fishing was definitely quieter than Tuesday. Last nights rain may have helped though.. might go out this arvo…23/02/2012 at 2:20 am #20452
Nope! I seen at least 12 salmon taken yesterday plus 4 were caught b4 I arrived and 5 after I left, the guys on the south side caught an 18lber and 16lber, I was talking to them today!! 5 fish caught this morning so they may have bolted up river..https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid … 8d29562e80 my 3rd for the week23/02/2012 at 3:26 am #20453151Participant

I went down the Waimak mouth again at lunch today but seemed to have gone very quiet, only saw 1 salmon landed and they reckon there was only a few caught in the morning. Water was dirtier, not too bad at the mouth but seemed to get worse as you went up the river. Had a few casts at Macintoshes on the way home but seemed pretty quiet there too.24/02/2012 at 8:52 am #20464
