It flows from Morskie Oko lake, or, more precisely, its beginning is the Rybi Potok stream.The physicochemical and bacteriological quality of water is only slightly below the first-class standards. Its normal flow rate is about 5 m3 per second, and during summer high water levels it increases even up to 200-300 m3/s (during the biggest flood in 1934, it was 433 m3 per second). Water temperature in the river is around 15°C in the summer, sometimes increasing to 18°C. In June, with a significant rise in water levels caused by the melting snow in the mountains, rafting trips are often organised in pontoons or kayaks (muscle-operated and controlled). Białka River is the only alpine-type river in Poland, therefore it has many fans among mountain kayakers. The Białka River Gorge, the so-called Skałki, which is a strict nature reserve, is a stunning place which you simply can’t miss when visiting the region. The river scours its banks and cuts into beautiful rocks located in this area. The rocks nearby and the surrounding area provide many opportunities for climbing, exploring caves and walking. The dominant species of fish in the Białka River are trout and grayling. A rarer species is the brown trout that sometimes comes here for spawning from the nearby Czorsztyn Lake.
