Was there for a few hours first thing Sunday morning (peg 1) lots of small roach but not a lot else bit disappoiniting really but the water is still cold all the fish I caught were freezing cold, bit more of this sunshine should liven them up a bit. I had some great roach there last year and also some good rudd.
Might be there this weekend but I am afraid it is also Ware Beer Festival this weekend so could end up anywhere if you know what I mean.
There did not seem many fly fisherman there this weekend for some reason, the fly lake is well worth a coarse fish later in the year when you are allowed to do so, there are some massive roach in there.
I didn't manage to get out in the end, the wife had me decorating, am going to try this weekend.
I usually fish to the right on the river side near the car park for the trout lake. Like you, I have had some nice roach and rudd, I also had a shoal of perch to about a 1 lb visit my swim the last time I was there.
I think I'll give the fly lake a go in the summer, the carp boys tend to struggle for the carp there but targeting the roach or tench should be rewarding.
