if you want to know what the river is doing before you go this is the website you need

Environment Agency - River and sea levels

It has to be said that to be of alot of use you need to know your river, for instance i fish the dove at doveridge where the normal level is 0.79m, i know that anything over the 1m level makes fishing very difficult at this time of year when the is no weed to hold back the flow and i normally wouldn't bother to go down.However the graphs do give you an idea of wether the river is rising or dropping and wether it is worth leaving the house for a long drive.
