Mick Broom fished at Swan Lake at the weekend where he caught four carp, all commons, with the biggest being a 34lb 6oz specimen. The fish was an unusual two-tone colour with the front half light and the rear dark. Another member reported banking a 30lb mirror carp too.

The AGM was held on the 22nd March at Biggleswade Rugby Club where the board presented a summary of how the club was performing. Main points of the meeting were:

1) Subscriptions would remain unchanged for the 2018/19 season

2) Sawmills Pool at Temspford following the changes to the adjacent sluice was no longer viable as a fishery and the lease would no be re-newed for the coming season

3) Lease on the section of the Ouse at Brampton would not be re-newed for the upcoming season and beyond.

4) Richard Banks was appointed President of the Club, following the passing of Bill Chisholm last year

The club book is now in the process of being updated and will shortly be sent to the printers, after which it will appear in the shops.

Final reminder that night permit renewals should be returned along with payment by the end of April, after which unfilled places shall be offered to those on the waiting lists

Chris Tribe targeted the river Ivel recently, using bread and managed a 5lb chub to bread. Chris reports that the river has been hard going this winter, with a roving approach needed to find the fish.

Night permit holders should have received reminders for joining the 2018/19 season by now and are reminded that payments should be returned to Dave Hallybone by the end of April to guarantee their place, after this date remaining places shall be offered to those on the waiting list.

Carp for McGregor

February 4th, 2018 • By: Alan Davies News

During the last week, a consignment of around 100 carp were delivered by Sport & Leisure Fisheries and stocked into McGregor Lake. The fish weighed between 3-8lbs and included many fully-scaled mirrors, linears, scattered scaled fish and a few commons and will give a boost to the fishing in this lake.

Carp in Gingerbread were on the feed in the recent mild weather, with a number coming out to those on the lake, the largest being a 30.02 Mirror to Craig Jones.

A member fishing for pike at Swan Lake had a surprise catch when his herring deadbait was taken by a 21lb carp. He later returned to the water and caught a 15lb carp but this time on boilies

Tempsford Saw Mill Trial . The EA have advised that over several days the gate will be incrementally lifted. It will then remain open for a year and the impacts on water levels, river users, ecology and the flow of the river will be monitored. The club are asking for members to advise the board of any effects that this has on the fishing upstream at Higher Romper and downstream at Church End and Ouse Farm. This information shall be passed to the EA and will help make an informed decision about the future of Tempsford Saw Mill Sluice.
