The uncertificated pilot of an unregistered airplane encountered a partial loss of engine power about 200 feet above ground level and the airplane impacted tall vegetation during a forced landing. The pilot said the engine continued to run and it produced "no power." The pilot elected to land straight ahead and impacted "small brush" and tall grass in a "swamp." The pilot reported no airplane mechanical malfunctions associated with the flight. He, in part, stated, "Did not determine cause of power failure but could possibly be prevented by doing more [thorough] inspection of aircraft."
