I'm not sure what you want to know exactly. I would have thought the bit by the cricket pitch and under the bridge would have more water than further up river.

I don't think there is a river on the other side of the railway tracks.

If you want to try fly fishing go to Barlow ponds.

To be honest with you mate I think you will be wasting your time down Millhouses.

The best stretch I know down there is behind Sainsbury's.

It never occured to me that the river crossed the track. I've just found it on Google Earth. it crosses at the back of abbeydale industrial hamlet and comes back just before Twentywell lane. Sorry otherway round it runs west to east.

There's quite a long discussion about fly fishing on the Don and it's tributaries here (in particular, the Sheaf):

I saw someone fishing in the Sheaf by Broadfield Road the other day and on sunny days you can often see a lot of trout in the shallows.

There's a fishing lake with stages just behind the Industrial Hamlet. The 97/98 buses will get you there.
