The river is famous for its trout and grayling fishing and the quality of the water in its upper reaches is so good that it is used for washing and processing paper used in the production of British banknotes.

Downstream of Whitchurch the river widens as it flows through a wide flood plain flanked by watermeadows and it frequently divides to form a network of braided channels. These man made water courses run parallel to each other, and have a series of weirs and sluices to regulate the flow and water levels.

With such clear water, stalking and keeping low is essential.
