How to fish from the Oak swim

This is a very under fished corner of the lake. The fishing is done at very close range so you need to be very quiet. A stealthy approach and light baiting work well here as the carp should already be in front of you. A classic spot for a bait is the mouth of the inlet stream on your left or underneath the fir tree to your right.

The swim at a glance:

Location: Eastern margin, opposite Point ‘A’ of the Point swims, depths: 3 to 4 ft
Main features: Tree lined near margin, inlet stream and bridge

Fishing tactics

A great place from which to lay some near marginal traps.

Stealth is key as the carp hold up here right under you feet.
