There were no salmon reported on the river during the past week

With no rain over the last couple of weeks the river has shrunk right back to summer levels. It has become very apparent over the last few years how low the river gets during a dry spell as the wetlands along the river catchment have largely been wiped out over the years through reclamation and afforestation. The river has lost a lot of its water holding capacity and is slowly turning into a spate river.
