There are miles of tidal reaches that are fairly level bottomed that allow any angler to fish overdepth, even with a floats bulk shot dragging on the bottom, wether it be an Avon type float or a waggler. Indeed the further downstream you go the less you will be bothered by any snags, loose rocks or anything else for that matter as it's mainly one of soft silt, sometimes sand, bedrock (rarely) and muddy Trent marl.
Check out the tides, look for one that's very low and walk the banks to find an area that gives the confidence to try out what you need to with confidence.
