Levels in North Wales at the moment? What’s to paddle?

Post by hayleyclarke27 »

Hi looking at paddling in North Wales this weekend. As we have had a lot of rain recently I was wondering what rivers are at a good level.

Was thinking of paddling the Dee but I would sooner go and do something different and take advantage of the rain. Anybody know if the the Llugwy will be up?

Cheers
Hayley :)

Do the dee or go to the south west, there's been literally no rain in wales this week, the llugwy most likely won't be running.

KW stated -

I beg to differ, maybe where you were this week it was dry, but from Llanbister through Hafren Forest on Wednesday and Thursday it was hissing it down. The bogs up in the hills around Plynlimon are all pretty saturated just now too.

When I said wales, I meant northwest wales. I've developed this funny tendancy to forget that there are actually good rivers all round the edge of wales.

You could try the tryweryn, its dam released so rain wont affect levels.

Sunday was good on the west coast, although a bit unexpected.
