A new internet tool for anglers is being made available in Windsor.
Angling Data View is a simple one-page website displaying live data from the Environment Agency's network of river data recorders. The recorders are based at Reading, Windsor and Staines on the Thames.
Keen anglers can click through to the website, which will be available as a link from the Environment Agency's own website. They will see details of river temperatures, turbidity and oxygen levels.
Stuart Keable, Environment Agency Fisheries Officer, said: "By giving anglers access to relevant data recorded and displayed in real time we will be providing them with a valuable tool to remotely monitor river conditions, with the potential to save wasted journeys, maximise their time on the river and hopefully catch more fish."
