Swale same up this end, every day another foot a weed left on bank an pools becoming smaller, really need a good soak here 

It’s like that all along this stretch , it rose a bit the other day but not enough to clear all the weed . I’m about 50 yards below the shallow rapids so I’m hoping there’s a few about later on
