Target silverfish at unique Redbridge Lakes

With its unique layout and virtually carp free stocking policy Redbridge Fishery is a refreshing change from you ordinary commercial fishery.

Both the fishery’s pools contain a mixed stock of tench, cruicians, roach, perch, bream and ide and anglers visiting the venue recently have been bagging up with the latter with nets topping 40lb.

Every peg has a rush bed to target close in as well as a small bay around 26m across on the edge of the island. Depths average 5ft and with only a handful of bigger carp to over 10lb light tackle and simple rigs are all you need on this pool. With a huge stock of silverfish, tench and crucians it’s a great place for a pleasure session where bites are not difficult to come by. At the moment casters and maggots fished shallow at around 11m is the top tactic for the ide.

LAKE DAISY (34 pegs)
This pool which has depths averaging 5ft is devoted to the pleasure angler. Huge nets of ide, roach, crucians, perch and tench can be caught fishing simple tactics like pole and waggler. At the moment anglers are catching well fishing a 4mm pellet over a bed of fishmeal groundbait at around 10m out. There are also some big perch in this pool to over 4lb and these are often caught fishing caster and worm tight to features like the rush beds found in most pegs.
