We paddled Middleton all the way to Winston today and were hoping for a big water flood ride but all we got was a good medium level.

Plenty of surf waves, Abbey was a well formed, three hole/wave series, etc. It was properly hammering it down when we left Teesdale at 5pm so expect it to at least keep this level for tomorrow.

Hope that helps.

WHarfe shot up last night to a good full spate. Just about in the trees but just about within the banks. I paddled Bolton Abbey to Otley today in about 2 and half hours. I think I counted 3 eddies and the 2nd weir at Addingham was SCARY!.

Should stay perfectly paddleable untill next weekend what with a bit more rain forecast for Tues/Wednesday.

The Swale is massive this afternoon, 4ft on the gauge at Richmond. Still p*ssing down and loads of floods everywhere so I aimagine it'll be still massive tomorrow . . .
today is the tomorrow that you promised yourself yesterday...

Thanks

This would represent a nice level, not to high but everything well formed. I will be at Barney in open boats tomorrow.

Decent enough level for the upper yesterday. Could paddle over the middle at low force and sbends. Swale, ditch low.

Most of the water around the Swale is still firmly in snow form, but there was a bit of melt going on (I was caving).

Any guesses what's happening up in Teesdale/Weardale/Swaledale?

What will be the best day to paddle? tomorrow or Sunday?

Thanks

Not sure and very difficult to predict! Tees was still low this morning, but if this snow starts melting higher up the valley then stuff should rise quickly. At a guess I'd say the rain/sleet tomorrow will fall as snow higher up and we may get a good melt on Sunday. Anyone got any better predictions?!

Tees gauge at BC was 0.13m last night, which would mean most sections would just go. I suspect this will continue rising today and tomorrow, although apparently its still been snowing up on the top of the Pennines.

If anyone has any more info on north east river levels please update in the appropriate topics.

Tees is quite high today and judging by the amount of run-off it will be bigger still tomorrow.

The Upper was low, but runnable Yesterday, neither oughtershaw nor green field becks would have gone. The Middle section was reasonably high and Linton looked pretty evil - I didn't like the look of it and ran away, did anyone in either of the other groups we saw out run it?

We ran Conistone to Linton yesterday but neither me nor Johnny liked the look of Linton. I think it's at one of it's most evil states at that middling level. There is almost no way of avoiding a kicking in the bottom hole. Not nice.

Ah, good - I spent a while looking at it and came to that conclusion. Glad it wasn't me just being a big girl's blouse!

Gauge reading was on 0.7m last night - is it looking high on the ground? I'm guessing this is mostly snow melt?

Drove past it an hour ago at Ilkley and it looks like a normal winter level. Everything from Kilnsey down would go tomorrow without much bother. Not too high, not too low.

Was low but paddleable today from Cotherstone to Abbey. Other groups paddled further down and I saw at least one group headed for the Upper, so was probably runnable.

Phone gauge was reading 0.11m at BC at 3am this morning.

Balder looked like it would go with only slightly more water.

Tees looked to have risen a little with this rain, but not sure how much has fallen as snow further up the valley. Anyone know better?
