EAST BANK (DAM END)

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

This bank is rarely used by plea­sure an­glers look­ing for carp, as it is a good 15-20 minute walk away from the car park. How­ever, small club matches are held here for those look­ing for a se­cluded ex­pe­ri­ence. Around 10ft-12ft of wa­ter can be found in this part of the reser­voir, which shelters the carp well. The bomb and pel­let or boilie will find th­ese fish plus the odd tench to 5lb, al­though the roach and perch sport tends to be bet­ter here. An­glers us­ing cage and mag­got feed­ers cast short down the shelf or at range into the deeper wa­ter will find the fish. Putting out a bed of mag­gots and ground­bait ini­tially will pay off, with 30lb nets of sil­ver­fish pos­si­ble us­ing this tac­tic. Ex­pect the odd perch to 2lb and roach to 1lb to grace the net to add bonus fish dur­ing your ses­sion.
