Ten Mile Bank sees plenty of skimmers to 1lb and quality roach

By Pete Woodhouse


The last week has seen plenty of anglers on the bank at both the Middle Level and the Great Ouse at Ten Mile Bank.

Ten Mile Bank: Plenty of skimmers to 1lb and quality roach to 12oz, have been feeding strongly during the last seven days. Tip anglers are being kept busy when alternating baits between small worm, sweetcorn and double maggot and tares.

Pole anglers get plenty of action when fishing between 7-11 metres, maggot has been producing the smaller fish but seed and corn have produced the better quality stamp fish; nets to 20lb have been reported.
