    Could use a feeder fine i would imagine, i dont know what the flows like but if its like every other river i wouldnt worry about the weight of your feeder. Just use liquidised bread and pellets in the feeder and fish pellet on the hair.

    hi wendy
    id check the river levels on rivercall before you go,at 1630 today the level at njr was 1.83 mts up and rising.if we dont get any more rain , it will still be high tommorow.bait wise pellets and boilies are ok.

    Hi Wendy...I fish that area will not go wrong with Halibut Pellets, fished on the hair...use either crushed or Micro pellet in an open end feeder, with hemp, and bind it with crumb.The takes can be very vicious wrap arounds.. dont be afraid to use large pellet.Halibut Boilies also produce,good tip is to fish downstream rod on feeder, with the upstream rod using PVA net with larger pellet pieces .
    Good luck... be aware that the river can rise very quickly, and Ribchester has some very big stone flood defences, which the river can and will cover very quickly in flood..make sure your gear is well up the bank (and yourself in extreme circs)
