I was thinking about spending a week on the western shore of the south island, but I not real sure what to expect as far as water levels. I have Graham's guide and my north island experiences indicate that I'd rate things similarly to him. Still, late spring could be BIG water and raise the levels by a grade or more. Specifically, I'd like to get on the Toaroha, Hokitika and Arahura. Any forecasters out there??? Info on transportation, lodging, guides, equipment rentals, etc. would be useful, too.
