Conditions for carping are ideal at present, with many fish feeding up ready for the onset of winter.
Small 'pasties' are becoming more of a problem as usual for this time of year but they will be netted out once again this winter.
On the Becks Lake, a high 20 common carp was landed on Monday to Dan Newman of Stevenage.
This was caught on monster crab boilies. They also landed another three carp and lost five at the net.
Bream, roach and tench are also being caught on the Becks Lake.
Winters Lake continues fishing well off the bottom on crab boilies but beware of the large weed beds around the margins.
Roach fishing on the Blunham Lake is going particularly well using float fished maggot or pellet.
Some good bags of small carp with a few tench are also showing. Late afternoon and early evening are the best times for this lake.
The Canal is still giving some good sport to young and old alike. This is an ideal stretch of water to introduce a youngster to the sport, virtually guaranteeing a catch.
Best baits on both lakes are float fished maggot, sweetcorn or pellet; luncheon meat is also good for the larger carp on the Blunham Lake.
* Sunday's open at the Greensands Fishery near Sandy was fished in gale-force conditions but despite this all anglers returned good weights to the scales.
In joint first position were Alec Davies (Greensands) and Carl Sumners (Greensands), both weighing in 50-2-0. Alec, fishing paste at 3m, caught a fantastic F1 carp weighing in at 7-2-0.
In third place was Alan Oaks (Popletts MG) with 42-15-0.
Pellet and paste will catch plenty of fish at the moment but worm and red maggot are also producing good weights for pleasure anglers.
The next open will be this Sunday (8.30am draw).
