September was a good month for Perch and Chub along the Towpath Fishery.
Perch to just under 4lb have been caught along the section between Ware and Hardmead Lock by lure anglers. Big Chub are starting to show just below Ware Lock and Hardmead Lock and can be caught using the wag and mag technique. The big Chub are starting to gather along the conkers section at Broxbourne.
Bream to 8lb have been caught in Dobbs Weir this month falling for Bread flake or Sweetcorn, also Barbel to 9lb have been caught in the fast water of the weir on Halibut pellet.
Roach have been showing in numbers at Rye House opposite the speedway, anglers fishing the pole and using Bread punch or maggot had bags of Roach and Skimmers and the odd Bream.
Some good Tench to 5lb have been caught by Carp anglers above Hardmead Lock on Boilies.

Tight lines.

August is traditionally a quiet time on the Towpath Fishery as lots of anglers are away on their holidays but those on the bank had some success, Anglers fishing Dobbs Weir have had good results fishing for Barbel. One angler banked an impressive 4 fish in one session in the fast water of the weir ranging from 3lb up to 12lb, all on Luncheon meat.
Anglers fishing above Hertford Lock have had great success catching Dace, Rudd and Roach on the whip using red maggot.
Carp are still coming out above Hardmead Lock. Some anglers are choosing to fish dog biscuit on the surface and are having some success while others are fishing on the bottom with boilies, also with success.
Big bags of Bream are being caught between the A414 bridge at Stanstead Abbotts and the October Hole with anglers mainly fishing the feeder using Bread or Sweetcorn.
Pike and Perch are being caught along the length of the Towpath Fishery, by the lure anglers with the biggest Perch going 2lb11oz this month and the biggest Pike going 15lb just below the Stanstead Abbotts Lock.
Tight lines.
