Tryweryn Information

Post by gp.girl » Wed Oct 31, 2018 7:40 am

Just checked the water release information for this weekend and it says lower river closed?!

Not much water elsewhere and still not fancying the upper (too much survival and not enough fun) so was hoping for a run down the lower.

Any ideas?

The Tryweryn normally have a something like a 6 week shutdown starting on 1 November. I believe this is requested by the water company.

There may or may not be water releases during this period, but they won't necessarily be advertised on the website or the water info line.

Hope that helps.

No idea. Maybe there is an access agreement, or maybe it is closed for maintenance that may prove hazardous to paddlers? (There was soimehting about a gravel trap recently, although that is already in place and paddling over/past has been allowed for the last few weeks).

You asked for 'any ideas' - how about the Tyne tour? Apparently 15.4 cumec release has been confirmed, although I'm hoping for some run off on top of that (come on rain!).

It's not immediately obvious how CT declaring the lower Tryweryn "closed" while there is water fits with CW and BC's access policy. Any thoughts?

You might get run over by diggers:

But, you'll be able to see if there has been any water:

Bunkhouse booked in North Wales :) Will see what everyone else fancies, rain forecast so might get on a different river. Will get to the Tyne Tour someday.

I would think it’s unlikely that they’d be doing that while the water is on

Well the Dee will paddleable from Horseshoe to MEM or into the centre of town, it is possible pretty much all year round.

Or if your group is competent to be messing about on tidal rapids, go to the swellies, just try not to get run down by people playing in sea kayaks :)
