Hi. When does the most reliable West Coast season end, please?
Put another way, is it relatively reliable enough to plan a visit in February or is the water likely to be more reliable in January and too unreliable in February?

Also, are there still enough other boaters around in February for it to be reasonably easy to hook up with other paddlers then, for the West Coast rivers?

I appreciate the info before I might book a long flight from Europe to come visiting with my paddle...
