Winter float fishing

Hi Guys - would appreciate some advice / information. Most of my river fishing is trotting a s tick float for 'anything with fins'. This is fine in summer and I usually wade and fish fast shallow swims. Winter float fishing presents a different set of challenges and I usually concentrate on the deeper sections around and below Stourport. This winter I want to try and fish the float on the middle Severn between Bridgnorth and Bewdley, when the river is just carrying a foot or two of extra water, but winter pegs are very different to summer ones, so my question is, can anyone recommend any areas / BAA sections in middle Severn that lend themselves to winter trotting? I have seen a few good looking pegs at the Danery, but would be fishing blind as I have only ever fished the feeder there. Any information on winter float fishing would be very helpful. Happy New Year to you all.

Hi Mick why not try Arley upstream the match guys fish a lot of float only matches around here so im guessing it lends itself for your style of fishing. Let us know how you get on either way all the best DaveH
