As we moved into December the weather started to get a lot colder and the fish started to shoal up and became hard to find particularly, Roach. One of the best places to find large shoals of Roach is at Broxbourne’s Old Mill Pool where anglers throughout December managed to bag some good numbers on the pole fishing Bread Punch, Maggot or Casters. Roach can also be found on the Navigation by the Dobbs Weir Café.
 
The Conkers strech at Broxbourne produced some good Chub this month with one angler bagging 5 Chub upto 4lb fishing Bread Flake on the tip.
 
Trout featured heavily this month in and around the Dobbs Weir area with anglers catching them on lures and also Bread.
 
Pike were making apperances along the Towpath Fishery this month with a nice 13lb fish coming from the Old Mill Pool at Broxbourne and another 13lb fish from above Stanstead Abbotts Lock on a lure.
 
Anglers fishing along the Ware town streach of the Navightion were catching some nice Perch on lures as the light was fading biggest, around 3lb.
 
Carp are being caught along the stretch between Hertford and Ware up to 20lb,
One angler whilst fishing for the Carp landed a suprize Chub weighing in at 6lb10oz caught on a boilie.
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL AND GOOD FISHING
