Paddled it today at 0.68 on the gauge and it was still paddleable. We went on a tree clearing mission and spent 1.5 hours clearing a lot of stuff from the section before the runway tunnel. river opens out after that an is usually clear. However there are a few log jams created by large mature trees. We were able to squeeze under or drag over. We'll go again with chain saws and GPS tag the log jams for the EA to clear. Lovely river and would encourage paddlers to take bow saws and help clear this rive up. We used a get out beside the sewage works off Bow Lane in Hale as it is easier to get off the river and there is parking. However there is a massive log jam just above it.
Going to paddle it again tomorrow nice spot. last time i went water level was down but still runnable
Which gauge do you look at for the Bollin? There only seem to be ones on the Mersey a fair bit upstream
