Angling Times (UK) - - NORTH -

Lochnaw is a famed roach wa­ter in Scot­land. OACH aren’t of­ten the fish of choice in sum­mer, but right now 20lb bags of them can be claimed across nu­mer­ous venues in the North!

Whether it’s trot­ting a stick float down a river or cast­ing a mag­got feeder into the depths of a gi­ant reser­voir, roach are al­ways there to give bites through­out the day.

But where can you go to catch such a weight of pris­tine redfins? Here are five venues we think you’ll like… Bags to over 30lb of roach can be made on mag­got, caster or bread­punch fished un­der a stick float, or try a mag­got feeder. Use a cat­a­pult to keep a con­stant stream of mag­gots go­ing through your swim. Con­tact: Tackle Locker, 01244 345069 Prices: Free fish­ing AN­GLERS have been re­port­ing some good carp catches from this in­ner-city venue.

Fish to over 30lb are com­monly net­ted from this ur­ban wa­ter, which is run by Sal­ford Friendly An­glers As­so­ci­a­tion.

A thought­ful ap­proach is re­quired on this venue, which can run very clear even in sum­mer. It pays to walk the perime­ter and spot fish first be­fore feed­ing an area with boilies, pel­lets or par­ti­cles.

Pike and perch also run ram­pant in here and many lo­cals like to walk the banks with light lures, drop shot­ting or jig fish­ing.

If spec­i­men fish­ing isn’t your cup of tea you can sim­ply pitch up your seat­box and fish light lines and small hooks for rudd, roach and bream.

Not all the Quays can be now mov­ing into the mar­gins in the hot weather. You can even catch them on float gear and mag­gots in these ar­eas.
