This weeks latest catches week ending 26th November
Multiple catches of carp are on the cards from all of the lakes, including from Temple, where combinations of ‘thirties’ and upper-’twenties’ are being landed.
Temple regular Matt White had two ‘thirties’ and a ‘twenty’ in one session, and Gary Knight a ‘thirty’ and three upper-’twenties’.
It’s a similar picture on the Old Lake, where up to ten carp to 25 lb have been banked.
It looks as if the recent hot weather encouraged the carp to spawn on all of the lakes, in particular on Temple, following last week’s capture of Nemo at a prespawning 43 lb 1 oz.
The Old Lake bream are also in a feeding mood, 74 lb winning the Saturday match, with plenty of big backing weights, on a variety of methods, so pleasure
catches could be a fair bit higher.
And there is still time to book in for the annual Carp Pairs match on July 29, to coincide with the RideLondon cycling event on that Sunday, which closes roads to the fishery for much of that day.
With high pressure in charge for the next few days, the hot weather looks set to stay around until the end of Thursday, giving around 29 degrees C each day, before a cooling to 20 or 21 for Friday and the weekend, with the chance of a shower. Monday looks to be similar to Sunday, with lightish south-easterly winds, 29 degrees and little in the way of cloud, with a bit more cloud between the sunny spells on Tuesday and 27 degrees, before winds strengthen slightly to moderate on Wednesday with mainly cloud. More sunshine and 27 degrees is expected on Thursday with stronger winds again, switching to south-westerlies, and a drop in temperature to 21 for Friday with even stronger winds, from a westerly direction, though lightening a little for Saturday and a cloudy 20 with the chance of a shower, and the same on Sunday and Monday. Overnight values look to be a sticky 17 degrees for the first few days, before a slight cooling to 14 on Thursday and Friday and 12 for the weekend and Monday.
