The last seven days have been very hard – the odd angler that has ventured out onto the bank has usually only had an odd solitary silver on the rivers.

Despite plenty of colour in Ten Mile fish have been difficult to find, Middle Level at Three Holes has been the only place to show any silvers.

Predator anglers have again been searching for the pike and zander with very little success with only small jacks to 4lb being recorded.

The Relief Channel has again been the busier stretch with very little rewards on offer.

Springside: Carp to 14lb have been reported from waggler anglers alternating corn and maggot on the hook, smaller carp to 5lb have also shown on the waggler when fishing over depth in the margins.

Roach and rudd are still showing when targeted.

Shepherd’s Port, Bear Lake: A slow down has been endured during the last week, odd catches are showing but catch rates have dipped.

Shepherd’s Lake: Bream to 5 1/2 lb have been showing on the tip when presenting bream-style feeder tactics. Maggot and caster have been used as a hook bait.

KLAA are reducing their 2015 season tickets by more than 50 per cent from December 1.

River-only books will be £20 and silver books will be £30.

May I suggest this would be a perfect Christmas present for anyone wanting to try KLAA waters.

Match results from Townsend Lakes Fishery.
