PH 7.85 was today’s setting, water temp reached 1.2 deg on Monday after frost overnight and lots of hailstone so water temp starting to rise again.

Large Drop in water temp this week has made today’s match a tough one, despite this fact anglers still caught.

Most successful method is maggot on hook & bomb casting to islands
With colder water temperatures, the catch rates are better later in afternoon, depending on weather conditions the choice of tackle and end tackle is critical for catch rates, Carp, perch, Rudd, Roach, Ide, Skimmer Bream, and Tench still catching.
Liam Shilling on pole caught golden tench, roach, rudd, fishing 8 metres out from peg.
Maggot and Sweetcorn and Caster best baits.
Despite the lowest water temperature in thirteen months, carp are still feeding, bites are a lot shyer with the tip not pulling around.
Fish are feeding mid water to surface producing best results. On Sunday Anthony Longstaff fishing the pole had a good day catching Rudd, Ide, Roach & Golden Orfe, also Shaun Renolds on Pole produced Carp & Rudd, Roach & Ide Good catches considering the very low water temperatures.
