All fish are feeding normally early or late and overnight, as if they know winter and very cold water temperatures are coming, so getting fed up and into lovely winter colours. Some good orfe, ide and silvers being caught as well as the carp are feeding well. Tench are being caught but not in large numbers but bigger weights seem to be the norm rather than smaller.
Fishing for pleasure anglers who read watercraft, & choose the correct method, and feed patterns is excellent. Larger fish are feeding up very well for winter and last years and 2 previous years angel bred fish being caught and putting on good weight.
Carp are feeding and ghosties, common also mirrors and koi at good weights being taken.
Silvers shoaling well get them to your swim and some cracking bags are caught.
