    Date:.. Saturday 1st November
    Venue:... River Ribble
    Time fished:...2pm until 6.30pm
    Weather conditions:..Very mild, south westerly, showers.
    Water conditions:....0.46 Jumbles Rock
    Air temperature:... 18 C
    Water Temperature:... not taken
    Bait:... Pellet
    Method:.. 1 rod ledgered pellet
    Results:... 1 barbel around 6-7lb at twilight.

    A slow waiting game, but we fished earlier than normal. River looked identical to last weekend, weather was very similar but fish were far fewer and chub had disappeared again, no idea why. If the forecast is correct and things are finally cooling down this may be my last session for a while.

    Date 23.11.14
    Section River Ribble
    Time: 15:30 - 18:00
    Weather conditions: Dry and bright with temp dropping to 1.5c at the rivers edge
    Water conditions: Up about 1.5ft
    Bait – pellet & corn
    Air temp – dropping to 1.5c
    Water temp: 8.5c
    Method: Single feeder rod
    Results: 1 chub

    I went to fish the last bit of light and into dark and see how it went therafter.

    The river had a few people on and I ended up walking much further than I had hoped to a peg I have only fished once before, a good few years back.

    I had a few small taps early on and one good slam on corn. A chub took my small pellet as it went dark, but there was no feeding spell as it was all quiet after and I called it quits early as I wasn't confident it was going to improve any.

    I spoke to a couple of people on the walk down and most had been on since the morning and reported odd fish each, the best being one barbel and two chub so it had been a struggle despite the extra water and it running off. They'd all left by the time I headed back.

    Smile Re: Ribble: River Ribble Fishing Reports

    hi All,

    Done ok on the Ribble this year with Barbel & Roach, not seen any chub at all. Had Berbel up to 9-14 & Roach to 1-14 (2 oz both times)

    Caught mainly on 2x6mm pellets glued together on a band wirh pellets in a PVA net.

    Tend to fish after 2pm, usually a "golden hour" then it falls off. This hor could be at any time though so be patient waiting for the "3 foot twitch"

    God give me grace to catch a fish,
    So big that even I,
    When speaking of it too my friends,
    May never have to lie.

    Jacko

    Date:.. Saturday 06/12/14
    Venue:... River Ribble
    Time fished:...15:00hrs 23:00hrs
    Weather conditions:... Damp & overcast with light breeze, started to rain while packing up. No moon
    Water conditions:... EA River level at 04:30hrs @ NJR 0.37M.
    Air temperature:... 6.5C throughout the session.
    Water Temperature:... 6.4C
    Bait:... Bread Flake Halibut Pellet & halibut pellet wrapped in cheese paste
    Method:.. 2 rods both fished mid river – Upstream Rod bread flake then Crust/Cheese Paste. Downstream Rod Halibut Pellet wrapped in Cheese Paste with PVA bags of micro-pellets, dried hemp and halibut ground bait. Loose fed both rods with corn & small halibut pellets.
    Results:... One chub 3lb-7oz
    Brief description of the session & remarks:… This was the first chance to get back on the river after a short spell in hospital and a few weeks recovery. Everything looked OK and as soon as dusk fell, I started to get one or two good knocks but only managed to net one chub at 17:00hrs. I'd problems with my cheese past being too hard in the cold water I also ran out of bread before dusk. Pellet on its own didn't get any knocks. By the end of the session, I got a wee bit wet and cold with the rain/mist blowing up under my brolly; still I'm back on the river.

    Date:.. Sunday 28/12/14
    Venue:... River Ribble
    Time fished:...16:00hrs 21:00hrs
    Weather conditions:... Bright sunny day clouding over at dusk and clear sky by 20:30hrs. Bright half-moon when sky cleared. No wind.
    Water conditions:... EA River level at 04:30hrs @ NJR 0.68M.
    Air temperature:... 4.1C dropping to -2.5C by the end of the session.
    Water Temperature:... 7.7C
    Bait:... Bread Flake Halibut Pellet & halibut pellet wrapped in cheese paste
    Method:.. 2 rods both fished 20M out from bank roughly on outside edge of an eddy – Upstream Rod bread flake then Crust/Cheese Paste. Downstream Rod Halibut Pellet wrapped in Cheese Paste with PVA bags of micro-pellets, dried hemp and halibut ground bait. Loose fed both rods with corn & small halibut pellets.
    Results:... Three Chub 5lb-1.5oz; 4lb-13.5oz and 3lb-14.5oz
    Brief description of the session & remarks:… First chance I had to get down to the Ribble after one or two very big flood pulses. The river looked good and I had it all to myself. At dusk, it clouded over a wee bit and between the cloud cover and the very bright moon; I managed three chub to 5lb-1.5oz between dusk and 20:15hrs then the sky cleared and all bites stopped. By 21:00hrs it didn't look like clouding over so I called it a day. Just after dusk two otters swam through my swim and a couple of young swans pestered me for an hour or so. Good short session and a nice walk back through the woods on a very cold but clear night.

    BTW Thanks for the kind words lads, everything is looking good so far.

    Brief description of the session & remarks:… This was my last chance of a session in 2014. Again the river looked good, however, the sky cleared by 19:30hrs leaving a very bright moon and although I had started to get knocks into dusk they stopped as soon as the moon came out. Again, it didn't look like clouding over so I packed up at 21:00hrs. Only one otter this time and no swans, and another nice walk back through the woods on a very cold but clear night.

    Happy New Year to everyone on FM and tight lines for 2015

    Brief description of the session & remarks:… The conditions looked good up here in the Dales but the cloud cover cleared earlier than I expected and the bites I started to get at dusk stopped as soon as the moon came out. Later it got very cold and misty with a full moon, very, very spooky walking back through the woods.

    Brief description of the session & remarks:… Again, the conditions looked good up here in the Dales but once again, the cloud cover cleared earlier than I expected, however, this time I banked a chub before the moon came out. Once the moon came out, about 17:30hrs, all the bites stopped. I did stay on until 22:00hrs just to prove to myself that bright moonlight is no good on the Ribble for Chub.

    Venue:... River Ribble
    Time fished:...14:00:00hrs 21:30hrs
    Weather conditions:... Cloudy with sunny intervals and light breeze, sky clearing after dusk, no moon.
    Water conditions:... EA River level at 04:30hrs @ NJR 0.78M.
    Air temperature:... 5.6C dropping to -1C by the end of the session.
    Water Temperature:... 6.4C
    Bait:... Bread Flake & Halibut pellet wrapped in cheese paste
    Method:.. 2 rods both fished 15M out – Upstream Rod bread flake and feeder filled with liquidized bread. Downstream Rod Halibut Pellet wrapped in Cheese Paste with PVA bags of micro-pellets, dried hemp and halibut ground bait. Loose fed both rods with corn & small halibut pellets.
    Results:... One chub 3lb-14oz
    Brief description of the session & remarks:… Snow in the Dales but clear on the lower Ribble. This trip was hard work. I'd just two bites at 16:40hrs, within 5 mins of each other, snagged up and lost a feeder on the first and the second produce a 3lb-14oz chub. The temp drop to -1C at dusk and although the river wasn't that high it was still pushing through a bit, 3oz to hold bottom and weed building up on the line after 20 mins or so. I packed in at 21:30hrs. After four hours sitting at -1C with not the slightest movement on the rod tips and I'd had enough.
