rivers are up all over the show down here atm drove over the clutha , taieri, mataura today all are high and muddy itl be weeks before they drop enough to put a dredge in , taieri will probably drop quicker though .

Oh yep I know that stretch pretty well 2 years ago I spent a good part of the summer up there rafting mostly from a place called the rock garden down to the glen or sometimes we would start at Lee stream , theres some big rocks and deep holes in there , nice spot though i always ment to take a pan with me but mostly there was not enough time with the boss cracking the whip !
