TIPS & TRICKS

A lot of fish have been caught off the quarry and Bridge Pool on zigs these past few weeks and that's day and night. Black foam seems the one on the Quarry, and colours with black foam on Bridge. A few are starting to come off the bottom now though on Bridge to naked chods as well as the zigs. If we get any warmer weather surface fishing can be deadly. Glovers has been a bit slow, but if anglers fished the zigs a bit more fish would get caught.
All 3 runs waters are fishing very well with fish being caught off the surface and the bottom. Dam Pool always fishes well in the margins down the drop off and just off the overhanging trees with a scattering of boilie crumb, pellet, and hemp and good starting point. Never forget the surface now though as you will see plenty on the top if you walk around. Lodge Pool is all about the far margins and near margins of a night when it's quiet, and again a good surface water. Middle Pool the fish are regular on the wind now in numbers especially fresh warm ones. Again a brilliant surface water and one that does respond to baited areas with a good spod mix.
A great place to take the kids to catch some cracking carp to under 10lb, and some good silvers on lakes like Mallards and Canal. The Duck Pond is one most forgotten about with plenty of carp to low double figures and are ideal for the pleasure anglers. All methods work well and bait but not in large volumes. Pole, tip rod and float fishing are good methods for these lakes.
