Lower Clarence

Anybody know if there's any safe grade 2 near State Highway 1 on the Clarence, or anywhere in north Canterbury. I'm a grade 4+ paddler looking to take my kids when we head down that way in the school hols.

The section between the Glen Alton Bridge and SH1 has some fun shingle chute rapids with big bouncy wave trains, some which probably qualify as easy class III. Take out on river L immediately after the SH1 bridge. Watch out for the large concrete blocks with protruding warratahs at the take out.
