Recent heavy rain down pours have damaged the Waikawau boat ramp which gives access into the firth of Thames.
Dredging has commenced this week, but is not yet complete. If you are looking at going out for a fish in the coming weeks please allow at least a couple of hours either side of low tide to ensure you get in and out, but preferably wait until the dredging is complete. There are still many rocks / banks in the main channel path. Take care to prevent Boat / Outboard damage.
