What’s be­ing caught? Ald­ford and Pul­ford pro­duc­ing plenty of ac­tion with sil­ver fish, and a few carp to 6 lb. Carp still feed­ing well across all the pools, just stick at it and they will switch on. Tac­tics? Try to es­tab­lish more than one feed line, and keep top­ping up lit­tle and of­ten with pole pot­ted mi­cro pel­lets, try­ing soft pel­lets over the top.

Whit­bar­row Road, Lymm, Cheshire, WA13 9BA. Day tick­ets £8. Tel: 01925 757985.

Very en­joy­able re­sults off all three pools at the mo­ment. Plenty of good-sized carp to 10 lb off most pegs on Lark. Also skim­mers ga­lore, with ide and chub also show­ing widely. Catches to around 40 lb.

Pole is re­ally ef­fec­tive, with corn, worms and cast­ers bring­ing lots of ac­tion. Later in the day try a rod down the edge baited with corn or worms for a larger-than-av­er­age carp.
