Moore river / Guilderton - water depth?

Going to bring the boat (Haines Sig 6.1m) this weekend, just to explore the river and maybe find some bream.

I believe the mouth was broken very recently.  Does that mean there won't be enough water in the river to navigate safely?  According to Transport department's boating guide and Navionics, there should be 1-2m for a stretch?  Or is that dependent on the mouth being closed?

when the mouth was open. not much to look around to be honest...

 a mate of mine was up there in a dinghy last week and said he kept hitting the bottom. normally you would

be ok but i think it very shallow with the mouth open

 risk it in a 6m boat to be honest if you want to get out on the river chasing bream there leave the boat at home and hire a kayak up there save damage to your boat and a lot of fuel
