Another angler fishing the same spot a day latter also fishing the feeder but this time using sweetcorn as bait banked 3 Bream with the biggest going 9lb 8oz. Carp are also making an appearance in Dobbs Weir and anglers are catching them on Bread or Boilies.

Big Chub are laying up in the fast water in Dobbs Weir and anglers are taking advantage of this. One angler fishing the stick float and using Bread as bait banked 2 fantastic Chub weighing in at 5lb12oz and 7lb.

Large numbers of small Dace, Bleak and Roach are shoaling above Hertford Lock and would make a great days fishing using a short pole or whip, A good number of large Carp have also been seen in the area above the Lock.
