River level at Wagon Lane

Here's a link to the BBC Weather site for forecasts. It's useful to check Skipton as that's where our water comes from.

What level are you happy on? What pushes you?

Levels at the Cottingley Bridge Gauge and what we notice:

 

2.62    Clubhouse dry limit (Feb 2020 flood peak).

2.00    Flood alert. Clear car park.

1.80    BANK FULL Gate wires at neck level.

1.60    Very fast with trailing poles and tree branches creating strainers.

1.30    Washed out. Gates trailing. Max for useable river.

1.20    If gates set high before water rises, great. Fast and swirling.

0.90    Rocks covered but eddies are all there. Swirly.

0.70    Fast flow and features. Level with landing stage.

0.60    Getting interesting.

0.47    Low summer level. Above the S Rock is paddle clicking shallow.

0.40    Above the S Rock is hardly useable.

This flow-chart  below defines when you need safety cover while on the water.

 

If the water looks like it's going to be too high for you to paddle independently, let the session organiser know you'd like to paddle.

For Thursday club night, the organiser is Judith and she needs 48 hours notice from you.
