Fallen tree on the River Nith

Mon 18 July 2016

There's a new (smallish) tree complete with rootball in the gorge on the Nith, fallen from the bank on river right just at the start of the gorge between the end of the narrow channel and the first main feature known as  double drop . It is easily seen if you keep your eyes peeled however the crown is fully in the flow exactly where your boat wants to go, so be ready to move left where there is plenty of room to pass or eddy out. It's in a solid G3 section and is guaranteed to catch the unwary or the swimmer. The next big flow will move it on but just be mindful that it's there
