Latest report

Over 1,200 tonnes of silt has been removed from Rushcombe Lake increasing the depth from around 2.5 feet to 4 feet. 

We took the opportunity when the lake was closed to upgrade swims and the car park too.
Taking advantage of this was Pete Bailey, who is retired and lives in Bristol, fishing his favourite peg 2.  Pete had just over 81lb including commons to 8lb and mirrors to 4lb.  He fished the far margin alternating between bread floating on the surface and maggots on the bottom.  He used no feed at all and a size 12 hook.

All areas of this lake are producing good pleasure bags. A huge variety of hookbaits are working from the aforementioned maggot and bread to pellets, paste and flavoured meats.
The Match Lake is best known for its crucians and silver fish which are coming out regularly on maggots and sweetcorn respectively.  Pete Bailey also fished this lake on peg 21 using floating bread for 53lb of carp including mirrors to 8lb and commons to 6lb in a morning session.  He was catching just a few inches away from the rushes.  All areas of this lake are producing good bags. 
The South Pool is also in excellent form.  The large specimen bream in this lake are continuing to show well on sweetcorn.  Bullocks regular, Fred Tysoe, has been catching some lovely doubles on small pieces of spicy meat.  The corner pegs continue to be the best.

The Carp Lake continues to be the hardest of our five lakes but some good doubles are showing from pegs 19 & 20 and peg 10.  Bread on the surface or spicy meat on the bottom have been the best tactics. 

The North Pool continues to fish well.  You need to go a bit lighter here – typically an 18 hook with a 3lb bottom line with pellet, paste, meat, bread-punch or maggots on the hook.  Feed a few micro-pellets.  All areas of this lake are producing nice pleasure bags around the 50-60lb mark.
