The last seven days have seen a few more fish show on the River Great Ouse.

Tip has still been the most rewarding method catching skimmers, roach and the odd seldom bream to 5lb 9oz.

Pole anglers have also seen a piece of the action although not big quantities have been reported. Roach have been showing on maggot and caster, Modney Bridge-Chapel has again been the better area to try.

Jacks have also been showing on lures and shads.

Relief Channel: A handful of jacks have been reported at Denver and a pike of 12lb 9oz was caught on a popped up dead bait.

Springside: Carp to 18lb have been reported on carp style tactics, tench to 5lb have been showing on maggot in the margins, roach and rudd have also been active feeders when fished for when using bread, pinkie and caster.

Bear Lake: Carp are feeding well throughout the week despite a drop in anglers fishing the lake. Four to five carp are being reported in a session as the carp begin to look for the food on offer. Cage feeder and method feeder both reap the rewards when presenting maggot hook baits.

Shepherd’s Lake: Bream to 5lb showing on the tip, cage feeder for best results, again presenting a maggot bait has been rewarding. Chub to 2lb 8oz also showing on the tip over the bream baits that have been offered. The odd roach has also started to show when fished for.

Tottenhill: Bream to 4lb and carp to 6lb have been showing quite consistently on the pole at 11-13 metres, and on the tip, roach are showing when targeted. Bream show on worm and caster, carp show on corn and pellet.

KLAA books will be available from local tackle shops from Tuesday.

Could all members note the new rule of unhooking mats to be used on all KLAA still waters comes into force from April 1. Shipshape Tackle are selling a discounted unhooking mat for £5.99 for anybody buying a KLAA permit from them or 10 per cent off any other unhooking mat that they have in stock.

Lynn committee member Peter Webb has been finding the pike feeding on the Wissey Pools when he landed a 30lb specimen during a recent session.
