Both Ten Mile Bank and the Middle Level have been showing roach during the last week.
Ten Mile: Roach are showing well throughout the major hotspots, Brown’s Farm has been showing well for roach, skimmers and the odd bream to 4lb.
Tip slider and waggler have all produced decent mixed catches, Tench to 6lb have also been reported on the pole lines. Night session bream/skimmer catches to 55lb have been recorded; best single bream was 5lb 12oz.
Modney Bridge is also attracting anglers with roach only catches to 20lb reported. Slider, waggler and tip are all finding the feeding roach.
Predator anglers are also finding some success with pike to 15lb reported at the Railway Bridge.
Middle Level: After last week’s milder temperatures fish have started to show again at St Germans-High Road, skimmers to 2lb and a steady showing of roach has shown on the tip when presenting maggot as a hook bait.
Crooked Chimney has also seen a couple of anglers on the bank, bream to 3lb skimmers and roach have all shown in catches reported. Pike to 9lb have also been recorded.
Relief Channel: Pike are starting to appear more consistently. Plenty of jacks are showing on lures and shads, biggest pike reported this week was a 22 lb specimen.
Tottenhill: Carp feeding well during the last week, meat and pellet has scored well in finding the carp, method feeder and straight bomb being used to target the carp.
Bream show again when presenting pellet on the method feeder.
Springside: A quiet week with hardly any anglers on the bank. Catches have been reported but nothing in the quantities as previous weeks.
Shepherd’s Port, Bear Lake continues to fish very well despite the ever changing conditions, carp to 14lb have again been reported. Fishing tight to the island on the bomb, has again proved very rewarding.
Margin swims are also starting to produce good catches as some fish move away into the deeper water.
Queen’s Lake: An assortment of bream to 6lb were feeding on pellet and maggot; silvers show well on the waggler. Tip is the more productive method when targeting the bream.
Shepherd’s Lake: Bream to 5lb have been on the feed again during the last week when presenting a pellet to the middle-three quarter way across the lake, when using either a method feeder or cage feeder. Hard banded pellet and expander pellets have been used to attract the feeding bream.
Roach and rudd are still showing well on short lines, chub to nearly 2lb have also been feeding well. Chub have been recorded taking the 15mm boillies being used to target the carp.
Carp to 16lb have been reported, when using either a method feeder presenting a boillie as a hook bait.
Alternatively, carp-style tactics, including pva bags and stringers, have both proved very worthwhile.
