Hi all,

The old "log drop" on the Hutt Gorge now has a whole new set of logs; at around 2m on the gauge the flow is pushing towards the logs - serious hazard, quite runnable on the left but make sure you make it left. Eddy line on the big eddy just upstream on river left is also a bit stronger than it used to be so care is required. This hazard changes frequently with a natural rock constriction trapping logs that come down at high flow so always worth being cautious here.
