Was low yesterday we did circuits on the gorge after putting in at Watersmeet. The drop there still went but not much water coming in at the confluence with the little trib. Some guys were clearing wood out of the gorge, all clear and runnable when we got there. Well done ;-) kiss

Some big trees still in the gorge but I haven't seen them yet. National Trust and EA have agreed to cut them out...they definitely don't want private chain saws in the river for all sorts of risk assessment and liability reasons, so give them a chance. Will post info as I get it.

The gorge is all good to go paddled it on sunday. A couple of trees remain in 2 eddy's on river right but the line is clear up to high medium flows at least?

Group ran the whole river Saturday. No significant tree hazard now. The major tree in the gorge has been trimmed back so the ramp between crux 1 and crux 2 is clear. However, on the tight corner after crux 2 there is a big stump in the shoot. Approach with caution.rday.

Last night's rain brought the Lyn back into play today, and should still be fine Wednesday, though dropping. The stump in the corner fall after the gorge is not a problem, provided you are still in your boat....

The gorge was still perfectly paddleable Sunday. Low, but fine through the gorge.

This afternoon the Lyn was running well with yesterday's rain...a fair bit on Exmoor. It will be lowish this weekend, but perfectly runnable. Bideford CC doing some skills practice on the middle section Saturday but won't get in your way.

Sorry! Badly informed yesterday. The river will be dog low for Sunday. Managed a short run, walking in below Myrtleberry and running through the gorge, but not worth a long drive.

Any thoughts for this weekend?

Nice level Saturday. Several groups on the river and most were impressed by the gorge...nice flow but not too scary. Lowish side of medium. Should hold its level next week as rain due Monday night. Webcam should go live soon!
Note there is a big new tree fall below Myrtleberry. Runnable either side with care.

Level still held this afternoon (lowish/medium) for a nice run. A fair amount of water on the moor as well so shouldnt drop off too quick.

Strong flow today, dropping from overnight peak. The gorge was 'sporty' and unforgiving. Should be very good for several days.

Low/medium today, the tree below Myrtleberry is easily passable on right. Lots of large branches all along banks, so be careful after next big flows.

Still at a low/medium level today.About 4 mm lower than 24 hours earlier. Should be good for the next few day's. My bro spotted a dead sheep twisted up in a tree down in the gorge.

Yes still runnable though getting bonier. The gorge is good value, even with the short version, but it's still runnable from Watersmeet.
