Note that these guides only discribe the lower grade 2/3 section. You will have to buy the Welsh rivers guide for the higher section.
There are no good indicators on the normal sites for this river. It needs a medium amount of water to run. If you can float at the put in the river is good.

Rain Chasers river levels
EA river levels. Less than 1m is a bit of a scrape and 1.5 is high.
There is a pipe on a footbridge near Llanwrtyd Wells and the river can be run from anywhere 1.5 m below this pipe. If the water is level with the pipe the water is very high. The pipes can be found at GR 867473.
You can also get a idea of what the river levels are like at a washpool above LLanwytyd Wells GR 859499. If the water is flowing over a pipe the water levels are high.
