Weed alert on the eastern (West Stockwith to Kiveton Park) section - 20th February to 31st August
As with recent years, C&RT anticipates that we will again experience weed growth in this area over the next few months.
Although weed boats will be actively removing this weed it is possible, especially if the weather is exceptionally warm and sunny, that boaters and anglers may be affected.
Please be assured that C&RT will do its best with the resource it has available to manage weed growth.
