Despite the very cold weather a few hardy anglers have still managed to put a line in the water.

But icy cold winds, snow, hail and rain have all hampered the gallant anglers’ efforts in finding the fish.

Jacks and small pike have shown on the relief channel at Denver. Both lures and dead baits have been used to attract the smaller pike.

Ten Mile Bank has drawn in only a handful of anglers due to the wintry conditions. Skimmers and roach have been showing on the tip, when presenting pinkie, caster and maggot on the hook.

Middle Level has also shown a few small pike to 7lb at the St Germans/Magdalen high road stretch. Lures and dead baits have been used by roving anglers on this stretch.

Springside has surprisingly shown a couple of carp to 8lb by carp anglers using scaled down carp tactics. Roach and rudd have also been occasionally showing when fished for when presenting pinkie, bread and maggot hook baits. Pole and whip have been the preferred method used.

Tottenhill: The odd bream to 4lb and roach have shown on the pole line during the weekend.

Sadly no reports have been received from other venues.

KLAA Open Match, Sunday: Ten Mile Bank, Modney Bridge-Chapel stretch, meet 8.15 EA car park at Denver Sluice, fish 10am-3pm. To book a place contact Ian Hoddy on 07825162206.
