10 July 2017 - River Wid

River Wid

Monday 10th July 2017 

I spent two hours this late afternoon fishing the roots swim (just upstream from the blue bridge).  The river was low and clear with little flow but this swim always produces, as it holds deep water by the undercut far bank.  Feeder fishing red maggot takes a few casts to put off the minnows until the dace arrive.  Chublets and a small gudgeon were also caught.  On upping the feed and putting three casters on the hook (hoping for the big roach that reside) the tip wrapped around and this bigger chub (1.5lbs+) was pulling for the undercut. 

A kingfisher streaked past and a squirrel climbed down the roots to take a drink from the surface of the water. 

Now the farmer has cut the hay fields and my new bailiff - Barry Stringer has been busy cutting out swims -  the banks are relatively accessible at this venue.  Please forward your catch returns and availability for next work party (weekend 28/29th October) to me Peter Yates fishery officer on 07465429877

Only started fishing this lake Saturday last week. As I fish regular evenings here I caught my first carp from this lake for on the 13th after few hours fishing at 13lb.  Can't wait for the 30th to fish ha ha

Southminster

2lb perch last fish of the day, from reservoir at Southminster.

River Wid - Writtle

Fished the bottom stretch of river Wid on Saturday 23rd September. Loads of minnows and gudgeon with two small perch that fell to red maggots until a jack pike became troublesome. I persisted into late afternoon and was rewarded by 3 chub. Largest just under 2lbs.  Note following summer thunderstorms there is a heavy snag now exposed in the centre/bottom of the weir pool rendering feeder fishing difficult.
