Welcome to the Pit Gman, :handshake: unfortunately you've asked the one question that's taboo on here, I.e. Info on waters. You're not the first and you certainly won't be the last.....

If you want to know why, try searching some of the other introduction posts :thumbs:

But to advise you a little.... On drain systems look for any feature, pumping stations, inlets, bridges, moorings for boats, overhanging trees and around bends. It's all very basic stuff and the usual procedure when searching water. Run down the length of it on google maps and have s look. I would say give it about half hour to one hour on featureless swims and a bit longer if there is a good feature
