River description:
Nežárka river is navigable all year round, especially from its confluence with Nová Řeka (New River). Its upper flow could have a lack of water in dry summer. Water register in Lásenice would show  70 cm at least. Its lower section from Nová Řeka is very often used by navigation on Lužnice-river , provided we do not wish to drive Stará Řeka (Old River).
The navigation is made, for its weak sa little slower. A canal Dekárka is a place of interest, this turns away over the last weir in Veselí on its left  part. mouthing to Lužnice-river.
