Is there any way to tell if it is 'in spate'? Like the current weather, say tomorrow, is that sufficient to make it impassable? Trying to get a handle on whether a rainy day or 3 = re route, or not. Just any way to make a judgement in advance of seeing it!

You might find that it has been a dry spell and you set off in lovely weather and then it starts to rain and rains a lot and by the time you reach the river it is in spate.
it can go up and down that quick.
if there have been several days of rain, I wouldn't risk it myself.
if it's been a really dry spell and the forecast is really good they mayb.
Myself, I'd just hold my impatience and wait for the bridge.
