Top river fishing at Manor Farm
ROACH to almost 2lb, bream to 8lb and barbel over 7lb have all featured with carp to 20lb, mainly on pole or feeder.
Half the pegs have an island to fish to, but a lot of the bigger weights have been showing from early pegs 2, 4, 6 and 9.
Silverfish can be taken from almost any swim on maggot or caster at half-depth, although pegs 4, 9 and 18-21 are renowned for the bigger fish.
Pole fishing works well with pellet and corn for the lumps, switching to a straight lead with flavoured meat or an 8mm pellet if the fish are out in open water.
For the barbel your best bet is to fish worm tight up to the island – which could also find a 3lb perch if you’re lucky! PRICES: £6 a day
