In the exact middle, or nearest to the exact middle; middlemost

A wide half-circle of foam and glinting lights and shining shoulders of green water, the great weir closed the backwater from bank to bank, troubled all the quiet surface with twirling eddies and floating foam-streaks, and deadened all other sounds with its solemn and soothing rumble. In midmost of the stream, embraced in the weirs shimmering arm-spread, a small island lay anchored, fringed close with willow and silver birch and alder.
