Opening Day River Catches

Rivers are off to a flyer with the highlight of opening morning a 34lb carp believed to be from a Cambridgeshire waterway.

The River Wye has seen the chub on the feed with eight in eight casts coming to Angling Times regular Terry Knight, whilst fishing the Red Lion stretch with Dynamite baits’ Red Robin boilies.

And barbel have been showing on the River Rother at Beignton as well as the weirs of the Trent. Boilies again taking the fish.

Elsewhere, Jason Ward has tackled the locks on the Nene around Northants and lured six perch over 2lb on floatfished lobworm and bleak livebaits.
