Thread: River levels..

    I thought it might be a good idea to start a 'river level' thread as a point of reference for those of us who have to travel a reasonable distance in order to visit running water!

    If you live local to a river, or have just visited a river, please keep the rest of us informed by stating what the level is like!

    No catch reports, just plain old levels and colour and anything else you feel appropriate.

    Micheal, sorry I should have said a bit more about the site. Click on the link and scroll down to the pictures of the rivers (Trent,swale,nidd,ure and wharfe) click on the river you are interested in and you should be ok. If you click on to "go back to my fishing page" you will then go to mikes front page (he is Barbule from BFW) and you can read his fishing diarys which are an interesting read.

    This one is also worth a look for flood warnings. EA Flood warning site.

    Thames was a good 2 foot up and 3" visibility.

    It's falling though, and that's promising.

    I've had a look at the 5 Northern Rivers site mentioned above, as I was interested in the Wharfe readings. Today is Sunday evening, but the site only shows readings up to last Friday morning.


    Since the Wharfe can rise from summer level to a raging flood in a few hours, the site is not that helpful if readings are always 2 days old.

    I think I'd rather spend 80pence and phone the EA river line.
