Chur everyone,

(Admin please move if in wrong forum)

Long time lurker first time poster! As someone who didnt fish too much as a kid this forum has been a surrogate in education with many days trawling through threads after a fishless day from the beach.

So thanks to all for your knowledge and expertise im sure you have helped thousands of others.

Im a hopeless surfcaster from HB now in papakura and tend to go to port waikato when I can, just wondering if anyone knows best way (if possible) to access the opposite side of the rivermouth i.e across the river from the dunes. Seen some people over there looks like forrestry roads?

Anyway thanks for any advice look forward to contributing now im settled and getting stuck in.

Cheers

Hi welcome to the forums.Access to the northern side f the river is via the Waiuku forestry. I haven't been there in over 20 yearsand I'm unsure of current access. I'm sure someone else will be able to help

Thanks smudge got some off the record advice! Will have to try it out. Pretty crazy somewhere so isolated is that close to auckland. If anyone reading this heads out that way or anywhere within a few hours or auckland and needs a companion flick me a message always keen to learn.

Hey smudge sorry for late reply! I went to go out there 2 weeks ago but road was closed for grading so had to miss it. Back from hols and into work now so planning on going out tomorrow morning hopefully. The forest manager says road is back open. Will let report how it goes, however if nothing is biting its more likely user error than location haha.

Cheers
