Hi all,

Coming up to the broads 1st week in September. My question is what is the fishing like at cantley and somerleyton?
Going to target the Bream (if they are about in these areas).
I assume the rivers will be running fairly quick at these locations so 2 or 3oz feeders will be used. From what I've read open end feeder with chopped worm and caster blocked either end with ground bait seems the way to go.
Will be fishing from the boat so any other advice would be great. Other location worth trying would also be much appreciated.

Cheers
Steve

Hi you will undoubtadley catch at both locations but as you say the river runs very fast also it can be a bit brackish which tends to keep the shoals more upstream, personally I would not go further down stream than The Beauchamp Arms on the Yare and Oulton Dyke on the Waveney.

good Luck

Dave

if it is to be it is up to me!

Thanks Dave
May stop at the Beauchamp arms first night then. Do you know if there are many public moorings between the Waveney river centre and be Beccles or at the start of OB dyke?
Crossing to the north side during the week. Want to go all the way to Coltishall, heard there is a chance of some good Tench there

There are moorings as you go into Oulton Dyke are you going to Beccles? The Waveney was fishing it's head off when we were down a couple of weeks ago, loads of Bream out of the river by the new road bridge, even during the day. The water at Coltishall is crystal clear, very difficult fishing as that means loads of weed.

Not sure if we will go all the way to Beccles. From what you've said I may have to pay the vast mooring fee and spend a night at the Waveney centre.
Do you know if st benetts abbey has been fishing well?

One last question. Are there any chub, barbel or carp in the rivers north or south?

Cheers

St Bennetts abbey was fishing it's head off for Bream a couple of weeks ago had some real good bags out.

as terrytibbs mentioned coltishall is hard work but if you ajust your tactics acordingly it's stuffed with roach an perch only downside is you can see them, they can see you

I'd rather be fishing

There are a number of BA 24hr moorings between Oulton Dyke and Beccles but they are quite popular both with boat and shore based anglers so you have to take your chance. There are a number of good informal moorings along the Waveney as well, you will not see the plethora of "No Mooring" signs that you do on the north. The issue of brackish water is well made, but there are two or three good spots just upstream of the Oulton Dyke, around the pumping station outlets (though don't attempt to go into the outlet pools). The Fleet offers a secure informal mooring and usually provides good bags of bream plus the occasional pike from the margins.
