From the guide:

This is a beautiful section of river that has been popular for years and has much to offer at a range of levels. The best time to be here is during a fresh or one of the three planned 30 cumec releases during the year. Boisterous boulder riffles provide all the excitement needed for a class III trip when the water is low (15-30 cumecs).

Take time to enjoy the surrounds as you crash down the 60-odd rapids in this stretch. Surfing and playing between 35-120 cumecs is excellent and the whole river running experience is improved with more water. The rapids dont change much. If this river was flowing naturally it would run at around 40 cumecs, so it can easily take this amount without appearing to be in flood. These flows are definitely the time to catch it.
