River Kennet - Thatcham

 

1030 - 1430

 

Bright and sunny. 8ºC. River VERY high - but surprisingly clear.

 

2 Chub; 4lb 13oz, 2lb 7oz.

 

New winter chub banker swim turns up trumps again! Wasn't sure what I'd find - or even if I'd be able to get to the swim - but after paddling through the field - found a surprising slack piece of water. Smaller chub first cast on a lob worm, 4lber 90mins later on trotted maggot. Lovely afternoon to be by the river.

 

Fat chub in its winter prime...

As a matter of interest Chris, any idea what the flowing K&A (C section) is like downstream of Monkey Marsh lock. Height colour and flow - I normally invest a bit of time there at this time of year but can't get there to have a look at the moment! M

Colour is fine - but there's a LOT of water coming off the fields/Widmead drain - so flow is really quite strong. Tow path below the road bridge (Thatcham Station) is flooded and taped off.
