Anyone paddled this recently? Has the dam been releasing? Hoping to paddle this this weekend - I will call the dam at the weekend but any other info appreciated.

I've noticed the EA gauge for the Clywedog below the Dam (here) seems to rise sharply to ~0.53m then plataeus and then drops sharply again. This would therefore seem to correspond to a normal low relese.

Gauge is currently running at .70 constantly - can anyone confirm this is true and on a chunky release?

The EA guage is pretty reliable (although not been over there today). Last season paddled at about this level and it was a bouncy level also paddled it a over 1m and that was very high and starting to get in the trees. If its still running tomorrow go and do it as its a cracking little river.

Paddled this on Sat (11 Aug) when it was on 0.35m on the EA gauge - rainchasers said this was a scrape and to be fair it was. Fun little river but I would say that you wouldnt want to do it this low. We will be back when it is on a larger release as it is a cracking little paddle.

Ran the Clywedog back in January on a .47 on the gauge. I wouldn't do it this low again, found it really boney and it needed another couple of inches.

Just ran this today and there are a couple of trees down. The are some just after the bridge (alternate put in) which can be seen from the road. There are also a number further down that could just be sneaked round at med levels 0.77. The weirs where fine at this level. With the trees we walked some because by the the time we saw there was a line we were already out of our boats.

Paddled this today and there are still a number of trees to take care of. Of the ones straight after the bridge we took out the first so the next two are easier to pass. The one to really watch out for is just by the house you can see on river left. There is now a small sneak route river right at medium flows but because it's just round a bend you need to take care not to just bimble into it. As soon as you see his nice garden groups need to be eddying out. Portaging would be difficult without going through the garden.

Hi all paddled this yesterday and they turned the dam off just after we started which made for an interesting walk / paddle. Still at least three trees to take care of. The first two are just after the road bridge near the beginning of the river with the last one pretty much blocking the 'notable' drop described in the river guide. Plenty of other low trees and branches to miss too. This river could really do with a visit from the chain saw fairies!!!!

Paddled this yesterday at 0.72.

Several tree hazards. At least one river-wide.

Paddled this yesterday at 0.51, not scrapey and overall a lot of fun but loads of tree blockages some in quite dangerous places. All could be sneaked at this level but would really benefit from full or at least partial clearance.
