add or change detailsThe Chicken Run
Witham Bank, Martin Dales, Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire

29 pegs on the River Witham with adjacent camping and campod facilities. This is the once famous "Chicken Run" and it still produces some astounding bags and specimen fish. Parking by each peg with easy access to pegs 1 - 14, beyond these the bank is a little steeper but still very accessible. Mergin weed can be a problem but we are happy to clear booked swims with advanced notice.

Early season Bream nets of 50lb - 100lb are still available on this stretch with specimens averaging 5lb. September offers fantastic sport when the hybrids feed eagerly in the late afternoon / early evening with bags of 30 - 50lb taken on pole or wagler. Bream to 7lb, Tench to 8lb, Rudd to 4lb, Carp to 18lb, hybrids to 2lb (great sport in early September), plenty of silver fish to lb and Pike to 18lb.

Bream tend to shoal at around 13mtrs or on the edge of the weed margins and are best targeted with light tackle on cocktail baits such as worm/caster, sweetcorn/worm etc. Tench will take sweetcorn, bread or cocktail baits anywhere in or around the weed margins. Red maggot will generally produce most species especially if tipped with corn or a worm tail. Advice on baits and tactics are freely available at all times from ourselves and pre ordered baits and swim pre-feeding is always available.

5.00 per day.
