Hi Chub,

Not sure I know the answers to that one [:I]

Just been looking at the EA web pages for some clues and came across this report
Report here

There's a section on the site called "What's in your backyard?", where you can zoom in and do a river quality search, look for the link on the above report page.

I'm happy to say that, as far as I know, most of the waters in my area are of fairly good quality nowadays thanks mainly to the vigilance of anglers and the EA [:D]

The Penk is the clearest spate river I have seen in fact I was told its almost of drinking quality.
Most rivers hold trout in their upper reaches but this does not mean that the lower reaches are pollution free.
The Trent on the other hand although its been cleaned up actually smells, and this is only 15 to 20 miles from its source.
Having said that it still contains trout in the upper reach.

chill out go fishing
