BRADFORD No1 AA

With warmer weather forecast for this weekend, fish should now be feeding on all of the club’s still waters. Shelf Dam is producing catches of bream, roach and perch on maggot or worm. Gravel Pits on the River Calder is worth a visit for trout on the permitted baits of worm or fly. Carp are now beginning to show at Knotford and Kirklees so should be worth targeting this weekend.
