The Waikaretaheke River flows from Lake Waikaremoana and joins with the Waiau River near Ardkeen.
Kayakers utilise the river throughout the year during recreational release events.
River flows can vary quickly and it is a good idea to check the weather forecast and assess flow conditions on the river before heading out. In some river systems, rainfall in headwater catchments will result in rapid increases in river levels downstream where there may be little rainfall.
