    8 caught down at mctintosh’s rocks tonight. 6 on the bank and 2 from boats Plenty of fish activity, porposing and one spectacular full jump just in front of a jet boat. River’s pretty clear might be more takes after the southerly comes through tonight.

    Quiet as, nowhere near as much fish activity. Must have all gone upriver. Apparently there was 5 caught this morning at the Waimak mouth. River was still crystal clear despite last night’s rain.

    I think there were three salmon caught at MacIntoshes this afternoon. Here’s one of them. It was caught one tree down from the white post. A small fish of 8 or 9 pounds; but perfectly formed and bright silver. There seem to have been a lot of smaller salmon this season! I was told there have been quite a few caught at the mouth over the past few days. But can’t confirm that.
