From Midway Park in a kayak I'd suggest going left (upstream) and fishing that bank. If you're brave and don't mind a long paddle, go right and stay on the near bank until you get to the country club golf course. Lots of good fishing around it and back up in the canal. Remember that Lake Waco basically runs from the south to the north, which is exactly opposite from most lakes in Texas. The area you're in will be somewhat sheltered from a south wind and totally exposed to a north wind.
