Eucumbene...perrrrrrfect.

Post by chrisp » Sat Sep 15, 2012 8:22 pm

Got a run down the Euc yesterday (in a kayak).

Just posting this to say (as it has no internet gauge), that the area had a little bit of rain two days before paddling it (3mm); it was a blue sky day; and the level was 0.54m (on the bridge) - which I classify as medium level.

So....if you are keen to paddle the Euc, it seems that there is sufficient seepage, and melt, to maintain the Euc at a level whic is ceratinly well worthwhile - particularly for packrafts (as they handle lower water better than a kayak).

Get in quick before the water all runs away!

Also - been on the Goodradigbee, which is another great PR river (three sections ranging from absolute beginner to kayakG3-4). Much warmer than Euc; has an internet gauge (wee jasper), and is worthwhile is PR to 1.05m (I reckon).

Hope everyone is having fun in the spring paddling season!!

PS - no photos...lost my camera :(

I am jealous and I need to go paddling :-( The Euc is a great paddle, Craig and I ran it in Feb on low levels and still had a fantastic day

Presuming Euc paddlers have testicle warmers, or tight collars to keep them down....
