Bulletin 18
January is traditionally a slow month on the Towpath Fishery last year it was the rain but now with the cold weather and fish shoaling up tight in places, fishing becomes difficult.  Anglers that have braved the cold have been rewarded with some good catches.
Trout have featured a lot this month with many being caught on Lures and dead baits from the Dobbs Weir area and above Stanstead Abbotts Lock.
Some nice Chub have been caught this month on the conkers stretch at Broxbourne using the Wag and Mag technique, also anglers targeting Carp fishing with Boilies have caught Chub, one angler above Stanstead Lock landed one of  5lb Chub on a single white Popup Boilie.
An angler fishing for Carp above Ware Lock was rewarded with a nice 10lb Ghost Carp this month using a single pink Popup.
Large Perch have been hard to find this month but one lucky angler was rewarded with a nice 3lb fish caught at first light along the Ware town centre stretch.
Roach are still plentiful in the Mill Pool at Broxbourne  fishing with Maggot or Bread Punch.
