The last week has seen plenty of anglers on the bank at the River Great Ouse at Ten Mile Bank.

The roach have been showing consistently throughout the major stretches. Pole lines and the slider have been productive in finding the roach.

Caster, maggot and hemp have all been successful when used as a hook bait. The odd skimmer has also shown but not in the numbers that had been showing. Bream to 5lb 4oz have been recorded in a catch of 42lb. Tench to 6lb have shown on the tip when fishing to the far bank.

Only a handful of jacks have shown on Ten Mile during the last week. Jelly shads and lures have been used.

Middle Level: Only a handful of anglers on the banks this week. Roach, rudd and perch have been showing at both Neepes and Pingles.

Cut Off Channel: Pike to 19lb have been reported.

Tottenhill: Carp to 11lb have been feeding well during the last few days; pellet and meat working well.

Springside: Carp to 11lb 9oz have been showing around the margins. Method feeder tight in the margins has brought the better results. Silvers are showing very well on the pole, whip and waggler. Best baits this week have been maggot, caster and pinkie. Punched bread has also been effective.

Bear Lake continues to fish very well despite the drop in temperatures, multiple catches are still being reported. The bomb with a single bait, then loose feeding over the top, has again worked very well. Tight to the island or in the near side margins have seen the better catches reported.

Queen’s Lake: An assortment of bream to 7lb has shown on both the waggler and tip. Bream have fed when fished on the tip over the waggler line. Roach and rudd also feed well on the whip and pole.

Maggot, castor and worm are all being used with success.

Shepherd’s Lake: Mirror carp to 12lb 8oz have shown during the last seven days, common carp are also feeding throughout the lake. Margin swims have produced the bigger carp. Plenty of silvers are also showing, roach, rudd and chub all feature in catches throughout the week. Pole, waggler, whip and tip have all been used to catch the fish.
