Huge sustained floods have been happening in Nelson, Canterbury and West Coast over spring. In some rivers we haven’t seen this for at least 20 years. The smaller rivers have had their banks stripped bare of vegetation, soil and loose material up to 10m above normal. Willows have no leaves left. Trees and branches are in eddies and many slips have created and destroyed rapids. Side creeks have chucked lots of boulders into our runs, creating new rapids. Some easier, some not so.
Prepare for the unexpected, scout your rapids and always have an eddy that you can reach in sight.
