The last week has seen encouraging reports coming from the vast majority of the lakes.
Springside: Quality roach and rudd have been the more dominant feeders during the last seven days.
Roach and rudd to a pound have been feeding strongly throughout the week, up in the water and hard on the bottom.
Either tactic has been working well in finding the fish feeding when offering pinkie or maggot as a hook bait.
Carp to 11lb have also been showing on conventional carp style tactics, and on the traditional match style method feeder, when offering either corn or meat on the hook.
Shepherd’s Port, Bear Lake. Multiple catches continue to be reported throughout a steady week on the lake, carp to 10lb showing on the method feeder when fishing tight to the island.
Pole anglers are also finding the carp feeding when presenting their offerings in the margin swims, pellet and corn being the more rewarding baits.
Queen’s Lake is another lake producing multiple catches, showing bream between 2-5lb, but a few of the lake’s bigger bream to 7lb have started to feature in catches reported.
Conventional bream tactics have been the most rewarding method to land a few fish when offering maggot and caster.
Roach and rudd are also showing well when fished for.
Shepherd’s Lake: Chub to 4lb showing over the carp baits that have presented, mirror carp to 17lb 8oz have been showing on traditional carp style tactics. A near ton catch of ten bream to 5lb, five carp to 7lb and two tench to 4lb have been reported during a midweek session all caught on the tip when offering pellet on the hook.
Roach and rudd also show when targeted.
Unfortunately no reports have been received from Tottenhill for the last seven days.
