To help club members decide if fishing is possible on our rivers and lake during times of high rainfall we have provided live water depth data.
Each of the locations below shows the water level at the location, time of the latest measurement, water depth and highest recent reading.
In some cases we can provide flow rate data to assess if the water is  turbid enough for good fishing. Fish are more likely to feed in cloudy water than clear water.  Shallow water and low flow tends to put non-predatory fish off feeding.

We cannot tell the extent of any flooding at the location, but this information may avoid you driving to the river or lake to find you cannot reach the bank or fish.
You can always contact the secretary for the latest information –
Many thanks to the Environment Agency & for access to the live river monitoring system and data.

How to get more from the river levels graphs

You can move your mouse,  or tap the screen, on the  blue river level line and it will display the individual readings from the monitoring station.
As can be see in the example below the blue dots indicate a time and a reading.
You can also compress the timescale of the graph to any period of time you wish.
Grab the blocks at either end of the display just below the main graph and move them as shown in the example below..
