Me too - I'm paddling from High Force to Low Force, and maybe further, so any level info would be much appreciated.

Reports last evening of the Wear being high and the Swale at a good level so there should be water in the Tees.

To be honest, you can always play on low force. go down forwards, backwards, wave wheel it, even play on the eddyline just below it. end of the day it is white water paddling. thats about all we have to choose from at the moment?

High Force to Low Force was low but paddleable. All the drops ran well and a good trip was had by all.
