I never fished lower loddon, what fish are there?
I fished upper loddon around Bridgewater a while ago, few redfins. Some people caught yellowbelly.
The section above Newstead used to be a magic trout and redfin water. But in recent years it's become just so, so. It used to run all year round but in the last 15, especially the last 10 it doesn't. Stops running for months on end now each year. Still holds fish but is just a former shaddow of its once great self. Same as the Jim Crow, one of its feeders, that little stream used to be crazy the fish it held. Not now. Real shame but is how its become now unfortunately.

Ouch, that's sad. At least you experienced the glory days.
