As anyone fished here recently? I went for a look last Friday but nobody was on it. I'm looking to give it a go so any info is appreciated. Cheers

Hi

We fished it as a clubbie back end of last year October time not recently but in case you donít know much about it etc.

Itís a decent stretch and there are bites to be had off silvers perch and skimmers

There are also quite a lot of carp so itís a catch 22 fishing light for the silvers, but the carp plough off and bust you as it gets very very weedy in the summer.....
Your lucky if your there soon as this weed should not have grown to be as much an issue, as there were large floating rafts of it all over when we went.

As you cross the lock and walk right towards the viaduct/bridge this was by far the better section and was where quite a few carp were landed and also lost.....

Our winner had three carp and lost one out margins on worm for about 16lb, hence if I went there again Iíd fish for the carp predominantly with pellet/ corn/worm etc.
2nd place was about 9lb again a carp half hour from end, 3rd was same section mixed bag for high 8lb odd and lost a carp or two.

It was also deeper in this section towards bridge, than crossing the lock and walking left back towards the road end which opens out into a wider bit. This section only one carp was hooked and lost and was shallower

Hope it helps

Cheers for the info Big Fella, never fished it but it looked good. Targeting silvers, I'd take a bonus carp though.
