River Description

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


The full description is temporarily taken down for updating and editing. Stay tuned.


Rapid Descriptions


Gage Descriptions

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:
Tye River at Lovingston

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."

Attention Virginia Boaters!

Jason Robertson

During the high waters of Spring 2003, there has been a noticeable increase in reported confrontations between boaters and property owners in Virginia. Please remember to be respectful and courteous to property owners; do not trespass; and avoid confrontation in order to preserve access in the future.
