COLDER weather produced testing fishing conditions at Town Parks Fishery.

The top Match Lake saw fish coming to the bank, mostly taken from on, or near the bottom.

Junior Perry Northeast had a fantastic afternoon session, taking seven carp from peg three.

Casting to the tip of the adjacent island, Northeast took all the fish on small chunks of luncheon meat, the best fish 12lbs 1oz!

Fishing from peg seven near the inflow, Richard Clarkson also took seven carp on pellet.

Rod Metalf had little luck from peg 16, taking only a couple of skimmers. A late move to peg one produced five carp.

Metcalf's fish were taken on a single piece of corn tight in the reeds with only a couple of freebies offered.

Bream have shown in numbers, taking pellet offered on the bottom. One fish took a 10mm boilie fished for carp.

The lower specimen lake saw anglers using different tactics to attract fish, but anglers fishing single baits had the better action.

John Connabeer (pictured, right) fished a day session from peg 10 and banked a beautiful common of 23lbs 8oz.

The fish fell to a single white pop-up offered mid-water. It was the same pop-up that helped Connabeer bank several double-figure carp recently

Carl Pegg fished from peg five and lost a good fish after a 25-minute battle after the fish snagged around the main island.

Big fish have been seen moving and jumping around the lake, mainly mid-water.

Hopefully, now weather conditions are calmer and the severe rain of late has passed the fish will return to normal feeding patterns as the water settles down.
