Latest report

The South Pool is fishing really well.  A typical bag would be that caught by Geoff Winder from Leicester, staying in our holiday cottages, who had just over 60lb of carp and 30lb of bream from corner peg 5.  Geoff fished the inside margins with punched meat on the hook and fed micro-pellets. 
The corner pegs are the most productive on this lake with the large bream and carp showing well.  Typically a 16-18 hook with a 4lb bottom line and feeding sparingly will work here.  As with all of our lakes at the moment, a huge variety of hook baits are working.   

 
The Match Lake is probably the most consistent of the five lakes at the moment.  All areas are producing good bags.  If you are bringing a novice fisherman along, arm them with an 18-20 hook and a single red maggot and fish out into open water – they should catch lots of crucians, roach and skimmers.  The tench in this lake are being caught on luncheon meat on the inside margins. 

     
The North Pool is also in excellent form.  You can expect pleasure bags of around 75lb.  A huge variety of hook baits are working including flavoured meat, maggots, sweetcorn, paste and bread and dog biscuit on the surface.  Micro-pellets seem to be the most effective feed.  Successful fishermen are using a 16 hook with a 4lb bottom line.  


The Carp Lake remains the hardest of our five lakes but is now producing some good bags particularly from pegs 2-10.  Flavoured meat on the hook or bread crust and dog biscuit on the surface, seem to be working well especially in the evenings, producing a nice stamp of fish to 15lb


Rushcombe Lake will be closed for the first week in September in order to de-silt the lake.  This is part of our routine maintenance programme and will give this lake a better depth and therefore it should fish even better.
 
Ilminster Canal Updated 31st May 2014 - Courtney Pas won the Ilminster AA junior match today with 3lb 9oz of roach, perch and skimmers from peg 1 on the long pole. Clifford Richardson was second with 3lb from peg 2 and Matthew Adams was third with 1lb 4oz from peg 7

Dillington Pond Updated 31st August 2014 - Graham Field was way out in front today with over 300 whip caught fish for 17lb 11oz from peg 11.
