    Default Thames levels ?

    Can anyone tell me if the river is pushing through hard or not?
    Was gonna fish the middle/lower Thursday but I know there has been a lot of rain.
    I got an 80 mile drive to get there,so was wondering if it was worth it.
    Thanks in advance....

    Thanks for the links
    I have looked at the EA one and for the stretch I want to fish it says typical range 0.22 - 4.25m(at which it floods) and the river is currently 3.35m which I pressume is quite high/fast?
    Was hoping someone on here lives or drives by the river frequently...

    With all this rain the past couple of days, once the Loddon and Kennet empty into the Thames, anywhere below Henley should be up and raging.

    My current local levels (Sonning) is 2.11M with normal range being between 2.0M and 3.8M.

    This link is better:

    Just put a 3oz lead on and know it will hold bottom all day and night at the moment!

    This might help even if it is a few miles upstream - http://mrcstats.azurewebsites.net/default

    Lovely carp. The Thames can still spring a few surprises I guess!
