    My local stretch of the Chelmer is almost devoid of fish it seems. But with some leg work and time there are a few fish to be found.

    Nowhere near you , but locally have stretches like you say seem barren in places, but the river in general still have some good chub/perch/carp. but leg work off the beaten tracks sometimes needed in early season, different story in winter, same old spots alwayys produce chub.
