Hi everyone…. After fish the Mak for the last 5 seasons looks like i’ll get a decent amount of time both mid reaches and mouth of the Rakaia as I have shifted to Hororata. Have already looked at Steels Rd access but river has been up too high to get down into the bed proper. Was at the gorge bridge this a.m and the colour can be best described…[Read more]
Thanks Danno and Jezza and M Spec all so very helpful, I,m really looking forward to fishing some fresh water and have always wanted to try Waitaki and Opihi so your pearls of wisdom are well noted. Have a great weekend and tight lines. Cheers Stu.
Hi my fellow fishers. Does anyone know if salmon still being caught in the south Canterbury rivers ie: Opihi Rangi or Waitaki? Heading to Timaz for the long week end but will still need my fishing fix. And I,m sure the Waimak will turn it on while I,m gone but thats fishing.
[quote="kevo85":abmp81qq]Hahaha, I thought the dude in the shorts was being a bit brave, I was soaked also as I put a hole in my waders yesterday morning!![/quote:abmp81qq]
LOL brave wasn’t how I felt ….. I’m never buying snowbee waders again as even using aqua seal they just keep leaking even more. I,ll go custom made and then I can get them…[Read more]
Some great condition fish being caught… keep the pics coming. My bro was south side Waimak mouth yesterday and land a 28 lber as you can imagine he is rather pleased and will never let me forget it as my one Saturday was a whooping 8 lb lol.

Fished out going tide at Waimak mouth Saturday arvo and heard how good the morning was and how well tosh’s was firing as well. While I was there mouth was slow on that tide. Anyone know how mouth went sunday and this morning. You guys at Macintosh,s must be havin a ball. Pity I cant get out again till weekend ” but starting to feel flu comin on “
Fished Waimak mouth outgoing tide pm Thursday 2 taken 1 south side and 1 north. 1 foul hooked near it’s mouth and was released. One maybe 2 lost north side left at 6.30 pm so i don’t know if anything else after that. Frustrating, bring on some rain.
Fished Mak mouth both Saturday and Sunday, Finally got monkey off back with a nice 14 lb finned clipped jack Still very quiet there for the number of fishers no sign of seal at that end . I,m sure one lone seal not to blame for lack of numbers being caught.
Just been looking for my copy, cant find it and i must say it is the only book i have ever read twice in my whole life lol maybe the only one i have read full stop. better find it as I,m doing something wrong this season so far
He must be very strong to hold a 35 lb er in one hand !!!! Saw a 24lber at Waimak and that was close to waist to ground. But hey he has landed a real nice fish this season and I’m still on zero….. good on him.
Just come back from Darfield and while there took a detour to look at the Waimak Gorge still rather murky but fishable but what a dust bowl . Not sure what she would look like down stream plus plenty of dirty water coming down from the alps over the next 24 hours. Also thanks for the offers for a ABU 7000 or 7500 but have just purchased a swiss…[Read more]
