Roach Fishing a Tiny River

Well today’s blog is a quick after work session down a local bit of river on a lovely sunny evening. I was fishing with bread/worm in hope for a few good Roach and maybe the odd surprise. I have learnt this bit of river holds some great roach for the size of river, but also some good dace and chub, and catching any of them would be a great bonus.

The first swim was a bit more of an open part of the River, with a nice reed bed in, casting just to the side of this towards a tree too, I was hoping for some quick action, and the action did come quickly! With the first bite and fish of the day being a lovely Rudd!

Wasn’t complaining at all with this lovely fish, I thought I would have a few more chucks here, missing a few bites, but connecting to two good fish!

Two cracking roach from a tiny river! You won’t see many complain with this stamp of Roach!

Moving onto the next swim, a lovely over hanging tree swim, I was confident again of a few fish living here!

And again, fish where straight on the bread flake, with another few nice Roach coming from this swim!

This little river is really getting a warm place in my heart for being reliable in throwing up some fish, and those of a good stamp too!

The last swim fished is a lovely long overhanging tree going into the river, so have to be careful while casting here, although this is a swim I have even seen goldfish swimming around! So catching one of them would be great!

The bites continued into this swim with another 2 fish from here! The first being again…another lovely Roach!

What quality fish from this little river!

The next bite took a tad longer, however on landing, I quickly noticed is was one of the resident good Dace which live in this stretch of the river!

And that sadly was the end of my session, and what a little evening session it was. To go to a river after work for barely 2 hours, and catch these fish, I was chuffed!

Hope you guys enjoyed! Here is my video from this session to so you can see the action in real time! Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube!
