    looks like there is some movement up the mak with fish caught at the mouth and further up today, a couple pics on facebook, fish look in great condition. won’t be out til Monday, the forecast rain doesn’t seem to be going to much- hopefully.

    A mate was at the Rangi Fri/sat and didn’t see anything. I was at the Waimak mouth for low tide this arvo and there was nothing caught in the couple of hours I was there.

    A good run came through lower river on Sunday. Got myself a limit bag 9 & 10lb (awesome wee fighters) Guy beside me got 2 around same size. A total of 6 caught in immediate area I was fishing. Spotted atleast 3 more heading upriver (very fast) Also know of one taken at Stuarts Gully Yacht Club on a small tassie ! Was a great day on river to start the season :)

    Waimak is spiking now, up to 150cu when I last checked. Hopefully comes good again soon!?
    Seems there are some awesome results out there already by reading above, any advice is very welcomed, I’ll be going crazy to get one this year after a dry spell last year despite many efforts in known locations. So far this year it’s just throwing metal in the river! Ha. Ah well, currently reading “salmon fever” so learning a bit more…
    Merry Xmas – tight lines
