FUR­NACE MILL FISH­ERY, KIDDERMINSTER, WORCS

The Mucky Meadow Pool is fish­ing well at the mo­ment for roach. There are lots of redfins in here with a good num­ber of them weigh­ing in ex­cess of 1lb, but the proper spec­i­mens do tend to show as the weather gets colder. Fish a wag­gler or long pole in open wa­ter with loosefed caster for the best chance of catch­ing. 50lb nets of carp are also show­ing on soft pel­lets fished over mi­cros in open wa­ter on this lake.

Ash Lake is home to lots of small cru­cians, tench and skim­mer bream, but right now the abun­dant shoals of golden orfe are show­ing. Fish to 4lb are be­ing caught next to the lily pads with cast­ers fished shal­low or on mag­got fished on the deck in open wa­ter over mi­cro pel­lets. Con­tact: 07983 969 809 Post­code: LE15 7EX

MEADOWLANDS FISH­ERY, COVEN­TRY, WEST MIDS

The ad­van­tage of fish­ing at Meadowlands in au­tumn is if the carp don’t feed, the sil­ver­fish sport is ex­cel­lent. Skim­mers and roach are now be­ing caught on small pel­lets and chopped worm on Lamb­s­down, with the deeper pegs on the road bank favoured. Over on War­ren the pegs in the trees are throw­ing up 40lb-60lb bags of carp on bomb and pel­let tac­tics. Con­tact: 01216 030127 Post­code: CV8 3EG

MOORLANDS FARM FISH­ERIES, KIDDERMINSTER, WORCS

RYCROFT FISH­ERIES, CAS­TLE DONINGTON, DER­BYSHIRE

The Carp Pool’s big bream are now show­ing. At this time of year you can catch them along with nets of carp by feed­ing pel­lets at 13m and fish­ing overdepth. Al­ter­na­tively, try cast­ing a small cage feeder into open wa­ter with corn on a small hair – although this tac­tic may also pick up the smaller fish, but more of them.

SNIBSTON DIS­COV­ERY PARK, COALVILLE, LEICS

If you’re af­ter a net of carp av­er­ag­ing 4lb cast a Method feeder tight to one of the is­lands on the Match Lake. The Carp Lake is also pro­duc­ing a num­ber of big roach to 2lb. Chuck a wag­gler to the cen­tral is­land with mag­got or bread­punch on the hook to be in with a chance. The dead lily pads also pro­vide a safe haven for th­ese fish, and by fish­ing mag­got next to them you can catch some of the big­ger spec­i­mens. Con­tact: 07730 582209 Post­code: LE67 3LN
