Due to last min plans I've got a few hours to kill in Nottingham on Friday. I've been told about Barbel etc in this stretch but cant find any info anywhere on how to get there and baits/methods etc.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

First thing to do is check the water level before you go, as i post the Trent is 5-6 feet above normal levels and batting through like a herd of buffalo, taking with it all kinds of rubbish.

Thanks for the advice. Ive never fished the trent before (or even seen it). Might sound like a stupid question but how do I find out the current levels....and what the normal levels are?

Cheers

BobMiffy you have a PM and check here for levels for where you are fishing updated regularly http://www.mikeberridge.co.uk/ and click Trent and look at Colwick.

BobMiffy I was out running through Colwick Park last night and I noticed that the ducks on the (opposite) Holme pierpoint side were all right in the sides along the reeds. I'm sure thats a sign of how fast the water was travelling thru that stretch.

Sounds like it could well be a bit quick then?

Just checked another site which gives todays summary as.... "Colwick was 1.65m above the normal summer level and steady".

Might still be worth a go?
