Hi this ride info from one of our adventure riders regarding river level. note this was for the west rack.
“Pick your timing, did it this weekend and the water was high and swift. My shorter friends had to walk their bikes over to not get pushed over (after their bikes took a drink) . West track.”

These links are for river levels in the general area the are a wee way down stream but should give a good indication of river levels

Or for indication in the area.

On the day of the ride report the Manuherikia-Ophir was between 30 and 34 cumecs.
The Flow at Dunstan Creek at Beattie Road was between 5.5 & 6.5 cumecs.
