Low river levels


Recommended Posts

I live in Suffolk, near the River Gipping, and that is low and clear. Most fish are in the streamier areas, where the oxygen is higher.


I have been up to the River Wensum in Norfolk a few times recently after I spotted a couple of large barbel in an unknown area. The mills and weirs are low, just downstream of  Hellesdon Mill is very shallow, not helped by the mill having flow diverted as work is being carried out. The main flow is coming from the Tud downstream of the mill.


We really need some consistent rain to get the flows going again, and we need the rivers to hold their levels rather than the pressure weirs just allowing any excess to rush out.
