Not sure if this has already been mentioned or how long its been there but large tree stump is blocking the final rapid in the 1st gorge above the road bridge on the lune. Mandatory portage at low levels.

Re: North West surf

I have heard that there is some potential for wind generated surf in the area & a bore at Arnside but I have never botheres although from a similiar area to yourself.
better to travel to Anglesey, church or Cable Bay or head east to scarborough.

Does anyone know if the screws to secure the peak to the SW helmet can be bought in general hardwear type places?
Left it a bit late before trip to sunnier climes to get over to Brookbank.

I have been paddling the Irwell/ Burrs for years & I agree with other comments that the weir hasn't changed. I think the gauge readings/ interpretations are not that accurate. Not exactly sure of levels sunday but saturday afternoon, on a gauge reading of ( I think) 48, ran part of the gorge at a me...

Re: Lakes friday

Hi marc

Just pondering what to do. Looks like rivers in lakes have dropped off rapidly overnight so may have missed boat.
Contemplating trip over to tees as east seems to have had more rain but rivers dropping quick there as well.
Not much use to you I am afraid
Thanks for the reply

Re: Boating Easter weekend

Bbrrr.
Not sure how much/ if any this rain/snow will effect rivers but they are empty at the moment.
Check out the rainchasers link to EA gauges on Inland, NW region for fairly accurate levels.
Good Luck

Re: Boating Easter weekend

Lakes levels medium/low-really?
Surely all rivers are empty, I know a number of boaters have been so desperate of late they have turned to hard drugs, crime and climbing.

Re: New Dagger Mamba 8.1

Would love to try out new mamba, had 1 on order from brookbank since oct. I keep being told 'dagger havent outfitted any of the 8.1 with creek seats yet.'
They seem to be widely available though. Dont get it.
