Thanks to Mike M., here is the footage of an early run on the South Fork Tye:

Greg Gil (in the blue Corsica) was also along for our first descent of the North Fork and he shot video of that. If anyone knows where he has gone please let me know and i'll try to get that footy as well. Thanks, Gordon Dalton

There is no gauge for the S. Fk. Tye itself, but there is a painted (RC) gauge on the N. Fk. Tye at the confluence. The gauge is on the Rt. 56 bridge over the North Fork Tye at Nash.
NEW: Now there is a USGS gauge downstream on the main Tye at Lovingston. This may help:

If the North Fork is running, the South Fork may be worth a look. Use a visual check of the put-in rapids below the Rt. 56 bridge as a barometer of the creek's "runnability."
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
