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.
