Does anyone know what physical levels the levels on the phone/online gauge correspond to?

In case anyone cares, the lower end of the first footbridge was just underwater at about 12pm yesterday. Big, continuous 5.

Does this graph relate to the telephone gauge? (I've lost the number if anyone else can post it up please).

The gauge is at Beddgelert, so actually upstream of Aberglaslyn Gorge, don't know about the phone one.

Hi guys. There is a go/no-go marker at the get on presumably put in by the fishing club, it looks new. If you walk up the river it is on river right, facing downstream. The minimum level that it allows paddling seems to be about 0.7m on the gauge?We noticed it after walking back up and had paddled an inch or two below the minimum. I certainly wasn't any threat to the riverbed at that level, and I'm quite heavy, so it may be set a bit conservative. At the same time, it was quite pushy even at that level... I wouldn't fancy my chances doing my first run on the Aberglaslyn with any more water!

red/gree go/no go marker has been in place for some time - Works well for all the river, Markers are also on the Upper section.
