Troutbeck at pintastic levels

Post by Lancs_lad »

Waking up this morning to see the Lune in Spate in Lancaster I headed off to the Lakes to find all the water had gone. We reluctantly got on Troutbeck (we were fed up of driving to see empty rivers). The following pin resulted of my mate. This was the first time I had done Troutbeck, but Im classing this as scouting in a boat rather than a descent!! We then headed off to hit the home run of the Kent at a low level.

Besides the lack of water it was good to paddle with some new people and hopefully my boating options will increase as a result. Cheers guys!

How did Force Falls go on the Kent. When we looked at it this morning there looking to be something stuck in the bottom of it. There was a definite twig bobbing around in there and still hadn't moved some two hours later when I called on on the way home.

Force falls went fine down the main tongue. I believe I was paddling with one of your paddling buddies today, Rob who you went to Scotland with recently?

No sign of a branch bobbing around on top of the hole then? I'm absolutely certain there was something in there because of that.

Forgot to mention that the branch was there but we couldnt see what it was attached to.

Perhaps little investigation in lower water is needed.

How the word gets around.
Heard by text there was tree in Force falls. Very brave going into that with branch / tree sitting in it. Didn't bother driving down because of this.

Yup, Force Falls is pretty sketchy at the moment.
