Angling Times (UK) - - NORTH -

NOT many venues in the North East can boast 400lb plea­sure weights at this time of year, but that’s ex­actly what vis­i­tors to An­gel of the North Fish­ery in Co Durham are en­joy­ing.

It’s Look­out Lake where the ac­tion is, and an­glers have been bag­ging up on carp and sil­ver­fish in the mar­gins or off the deck on pel­lets fished un­der a float.

If it’s sil­ver­fish you pre­fer then feed­ing a lit­tle chopped worm and fish­ing mag­got on the hook is ad­vised.

If you like to catch big­ger fish, Bowes Lake may be a bet­ter op­tion for you.

De­spite be­ing a typ­i­cal match style venue, this lake holds bream into dou­ble fig­ures.

A small cage or Method feeder fished just off the is­land in the deeper wa­ter will give the best chance of catch­ing one or two. PRICES: £12 a day, £5 for an ex­tra rod CON­TACT: 0191 410 0449,­gelfish­ LO­CA­TION: Bas­setts Look­out, North­side, Birt­ley, Ch­ester-le-Street, County Durham, DH3 1RF

RULES: Bar­b­less hooks only, all fish to be landed in a net, free-run­ning rigs only, no float­ing poles, fish­ery own pel­lets to be used, no feed­ing corn or meat, no float­ing baits, no bread

Look­out Lake is in crack­ing carp form right now.
