We have an unexpected but very welcome early summer lift in the river level. This morning the gauge at Witton Park shows a level of 0.64m, a lift of 36cm, approx. 14/15 inches in old money.
It’s not massive but should help to flush out some of the moss which was taking over in the low water conditions and hopefully encourage an early summer run of fish.
If you would like to monitor the river levels there is a link at the side of the page to help, along with a link to the Upstream fish counts where the May figures should appear very soon.
