I've been for a walk down the river Trent at Swarkestone today with a view to fishing it soon. It used to be very popular years ago but hardly anyone fishes it now. But, it's little wonder as there are loads of fallen trees and very little space available to fish from. Years ago I can't remember it ever being so overgrown. I'm just wondering who would be responsible for clearing the undergrowth? I can't imagine the controlling club would be able to do the work as some of the trees are huge and are in the water. If left, the river will become unfishable. Would the EA ever step in and clear it or will it be just left ??
