Fishing Report



27th July 2015



Rushcombe Lake is still in cracking form.  All areas of this lake are producing excellent bags of between 50-100lb. 


As well as our pleasure anglers, lots of our recent holidaymakers have enjoyed fishing this lake.  The Tomlinson family from Staffordshire had six 5 hour sessions on here and had between 45-80lb of fish each time.  Malcolm Munn from Nottinghamshire had an 80lb bag during one session and then returned to peg 1 for an evening session fishing to the corner for 12 carp to 5lb.  Paul Rothwell from Lancashire had a nice 7.5lb common* - part of a 35lb net taken in a 2 hour evening session on sweetcorn.


Local, Craig Owen from Bristol, fished peg 14 and had 60-70lb of carp on pellet and paste, feeding micro-pellets. Fish to 7lb plus*. 



The North Pool is also fishing well.  Malcolm Munn had a lovely 60lb mixed bag including carp, bream, tench and crucian carp.  


Young Tom Wilkins caught his personal best fish* (a beautiful common carp) with the top 2 sections of a pole and light tackle 2ft out from the bank.



The Carp Lake is still fishing hard in the middle of the day but there are some lovely doubles showing in the early morning and evening.  Travelling down to stay in The Six House for the 12th time this year was Bob Rothwell from Manchester.  His best fish of the week was a lovely 9.5lb* common on paste.



The Match Lake is also fishing well at the moment.  Alistair Hook caught a beauty from this lake – a 15.5lb* carp on floating bread in the reeds. He also had a nice 10lb carp during his session. 



The South Pool is also producing really well.  A 16-18 hook with a 3-4lb bottom line is the way to go on this lake – in line with the other lakes too.  A huge variety of hookbaits are working with maggots, pellets, sweetcorn and small pieces of luncheon meat being the favourites.  Floating bread works well in the early morning and evening.  The large bream in this lake are showing well but there are also some lovely double-figured carp being caught.  All pegs are producing.
