AS­TON PARK FISH­ERIES, SH­EFFIELD, SOUTH YORK­SHIRE

The sil­ver fish are feed­ing re­ally well on Bills Lake. One an­gler re­cently put to­gether a 122lb bag con­sist­ing mainly of chub in the 8oz-12oz range. Fishthe pole with banded caster and reg­u­lar feed­ing and see the float go un­der all day long. The carp are feed­ing on all the lakes but are mainly in the shal­lower ar­eas or up on the sur­face. Try trick­ling bait into the mar­gins and fish­ing meat later on for carp. Con­tact: 07743 845737 Post­code: S26 5EP

LAN­G­LEY LAKES, PRE­STON, LAN­CASHIRE

The two-acre Spec­i­men Lake is cur­rently fish­ing bet­ter than ever for carp. Sin­gle hook­baits or small pop-ups fished in con­junc­tion with a PVA bag have ac­counted for mir­rors to 28lb. The lake holds 50 fish be­tween 13lb and 28lb which were freshly stocked in Fe­bru­ary this year. The venue also has a match wa­ter if you are af­ter plenty of bites from carp, bream, tench, roach and ide. An­glers fish­ing the pole on this lake with pel­lets on the hook have man­aged mixed bags reach­ing 115lb. Con­tact: 01772 861901 Post­code: PR3 2JP

LLOYDS MEADOW FISH­ERY, CH­ESTER, CHESHIRE

Fox and Heron Lakes are cur­rently fish­ing well for bags of sil­ver fish. An­glers pole fish­ing up in the wa­ter with mag­gots are catch­ing plenty of roach, ide and skim­mers. Fox is also home to some nice tench and cru­cians which of­ten fall to ex­pander pel­lets pre­sented on the bot­tom. Carp are present in all the lakes but the bigger fish of 10lb-plus of­ten show in King­fisher to feeder fished mag­got or pel­lets. Con­tact: 01928 740710 Post­code: CH3 8BD

LOWFIELD LAKES, ROTHER­HAM, SOUTH YORK­SHIRE

Plenty of ac­tion on the pole at the mo­ment for an­glers fish­ing Main Lake. A 40lb 9oz net of sil­vers was bagged in a re­cent match which in­cluded ide, bream, roach and perch. It’s worth bring­ing a selec­tion of baits, how­ever, you won’t go far wrong with worms, mag­gots or cast­ers. The carp in the main lake have reached weights of 24lb and of­ten slip up to an­glers fish­ing with pel­lets or paste. River­side Lake of­fers a lot more carp to tar­get reach­ing weights of 18lb, while Cor­ner Lake is a mixed plea­sure wa­ter which has thrown up some real sur­prises in the past, in­clud­ing a 5lb ide.

SWILLINGTON PARK FISH­ING, LEEDS, WEST YORK­SHIRE

Plea­sure an­glers are en­joy­ing some very pro­duc­tive fish­ing at the mo­ment on lakes 2 and 3. Fish­ing the pole with mag­gots or pel­lets is prov­ing ef­fec­tive at pick­ing out the bigger bream and tench, both of which av­er­age 3b-6lbs in Lake 2. Lake 3 has been fish­ing par­tic­u­larly well on the warmer days when the resident carp have been up on the sur­face. Fish to 20lb have been caught off the top but will also show to the Method feeder fished to the far bank or close in to the mar­gins later on in the day. Con­tact: 0113 2869129 Post­code: LS26 8QA

THE OAKS LAKES, SESSAY, NORTH YORK­SHIRE

This 10-lake com­plex of­fers a mix­ture of spec­i­men, match and plea­sure fish­ing wa­ters. Alders Lake is fish­ing very well at the mo­ment, with an­glers catch­ing lots of ide and carp when us­ing chopped worm and caster shal­low on the pole. Maple and Poplars will pro­vide ac­tion from F1s and carp. The best tac­tic here is to fish to the is­land with mag­gots over a bed of ground­bait. If you are af­ter bigger carp then the Wil­low spec­i­men lake con­tains fish to mid-twen­ties which have re­cently falled to zigs or small PVA sticks. Con­tact: 01845 501321 Post­code: YO7 3BG
