Improvements continuing at Weybread Fishery

WAVENEY VALLEY: Weybread Fishery has been busy improving the parking and the paths and extending the business into a nicely landscaped and stocked lake for chalet holidays only.

Weybread Fishery has been busy improving the parking and the paths and extending the business into a nicely landscaped and stocked lake for chalet holidays only.

The willowy main lake has begun to fish well in its shallower areas as the water warms up. Tench and crucians filled the frame and it is not just the skimmers and roach which hold the attraction now. For anyone looking for a worthwhile outing with a youngster the central island has been a good idea. Some have taken up to 50 fish at a sitting.

Bales Nursery fishery was host to two retired York anglers on holiday who float fished the waggler in the old part of the lake for roach. They took a stone of roach each up to 1lb 3ozs each on red maggot, with the bonus of a 1lb tench.

Marsh Trail Lakes has had plenty of visitors trying their luck and being rewarded quite well for it. The carp have begun to dominate, with pegs around five to seven in A Lake producing the best results followed by the area 12 to 14 in C Pit.

Broom B Pit's big bream have begun to show and a bag of seven, all in the 6lb to 8lb range taken well out on the feeder, indicate the potential.
