Normal Waitara run was from Hole in the Hedge to either Spargo Road (9.5kms) or Bertrand Road Bridge (12kms). Spargo Road is longer carry out (300m uphill) but the river is flat for 2.5kms between these two points.

Waitara guage is at : Waitara at Bertrand Road Look for 50+ cumecs

UPDATE: Hole in the Hedge - Access to the Manganui River. After a change in sharemilkers the acccess to the Mangnui from the "Hole in the Hedge" is currently closed. A new access point onto the Waitara is being researched. Contact Peter at Canoe and Kayak for details.
