Joe Anderson of Kaimai Canoe Club has passed on the release dates for the 2006-2007 season on the Wairoa River near Tauranga. Water reaches McLaren Falls at 10am and shuts off at 4pm. Note that parking on the right as you approach McLaren Falls bridge is a loading zone only on flow days. The local council was policing it last season. Please also note that a koha of $1 is expected at the take out paddock next to Ruahihi Power station, and $5 for access to midway.
