|Basic information about river|
This river starts with confluence of Vychylovka and Harvelka brooks, taking their waters from west part of Oravska Magura Mountain Range. Later, it turns to northwest, and this direction is kept up to its mouth into Kysuca-river, near to the community Krásno nad Kysucou. River-basin measures 240 square kilometres, and the length of passable section makes 19 kms.
This river flows – in its upper and central part - through stony river-bed, 10-15 m wide, in an open valley. Its water stream is quick, in consequence of higher slope, first of all in its upper part. Anyway, the water speed is reducing in its lower part, from the community of Zborov nad Bystricou. There are no serious obstacles in river, the river bed is clear, and the navigation is quite easy. The river is passable during snow thaw in spring (high water level) or after havy rains only.
Water register indexes are missing, so local actual conditions are to be judged in visual way only.
