Taipo flows for upper section

Has anyone paddled the upper Taipo lately, and can they tell us what the gauge now reads for a good flow ?

Last weekend all the Coast rivers were low, and the Taipo was low & clear blue, yet the gauge said 2.9m - ie: a good flow for the upper section according to Grum.
It looks like the riverbed at the bridge has been filled in with a lot of new gravel, I would guess 30 - 50 more cm is required now.

thanks
