The 6th and final round of the Oxford Summer league was fished by 7 teams of 6 on the Thames at Medley and Folly. Despite the clear river and lack of flow the roach again dominated the individual weights. Drennan Oxford Yellow showed their class in comfortable winning the team match and in doing so won the league again.
1st John Taylor – Sensas A4 – 29lb 14oz. John drew at the bottom of the green bank on Medley and fished waggler and tares over hemp feed to catch a brilliant net of roach. But for the large amount of floating weed John is sure he would have had over 40lb.


2nd Steve Townsend – Drennan Oxford Yellow – 21lb 14oz. Steve drew the form peg at Folly, outside the cottages at the top of Coca Cola bay. Steve had roach and perch at 7m on caster over groundbait feed.

Sunday 2nd July 2017

The ODAA open was fished by 29 anglers on a very clear and very weedy Thames at Medley. Rather surprisingly the roach fed in most sections but this also meant that the pike were also very active with some anglers struggling to land any roach that fought a bit.
1st John Taylor – Sensas A4 – 18lb 10oz. John drew at the bottom end 1 above Sandy point and had 4lb of perch on a chop worm feeder and then had roach on the waggler and tares over hemp feed.
2nd Tom Hobbs – Drennan Oxford - 15lb 12oz. Tom drew 1 above the mud flats and had a bream and skimmer on a open end feeder and then caught roach on a 13m pole and maggot.
3rd Gary Pook – Daiwa Dorking – 15lb 8oz. Gary drew on the lone Poplar and had 3 bream and a chub early on 14m pole and worm over chop worm.
4th Paul Passmore – Devizes MG – 12lb 11oz. Paul drew just below the Perch pub and had all roach on caster over hemp and caster feed.

ODAA Open Match

39 anglers fished the latest ODAA open match on the Thames spread over the top end of Medley, Abbey and Folly sections.

ODAA Open Match

27 anglers fished the 1st ODAA open match of the season on a low and clear Thames at Medley with 14 pegs at the top end and 14 pegs at the bottom end. Bream had been caught all through during the 1s week of the season so these were expected to provide the winning weights. With 4 end pegs in draw it was these that provided the top weights with pegs in between showing up just 3 or 4 bream or skimmers.
1st Mick Denton - Drennan Oxford - 67lb 3oz. Mick drew top end peg on the bottom 14 pegs which put him in the Perch bay below the Poplars. Mick had 19 bream and 5lb of perch on the open end feeder and groundbait with worm on the hook. Mick fished 3/4 across but also lost a number of fish in the weed.
2nd Colin Wainwright - Sensas A4 - 26lb 2oz Colin drew bottom end peg on the top 14 pegs and had 7 bream on the open end feeder and groundbait with worm on the hook.
3rd Phil Drew - Sensas A4 - 25lb 13oz. Phil was bottom end peg on the venue and also had bream on the feeder and worm.
4th Dave Johnson - Swindon - 20lb

Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme

 

You may also be interested to know that the Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme are going to be holding public events at the end of June/start of July to introduce the scheme to the wider community and explain where we are in the design process (which is pretty much at the beginning!). We will also be asking everyone who attends if they can share any local knowledge that will help us to develop the scheme. You are more than welcome to attend any of the following events:

River Season Ends

Remember, fishing for coarse fish in rivers is off limits between 15 March to 15 June inclusive.
We’ll be out patrolling rivers and anyone caught fishing illegally can expect to be prosecuted and face a substantial fine.
In 2013/ 2014 we checked 80,000 rod licences and prosecuted 2,795 anglers for fishing without a licence.
However, depending on landowner agreement, and with a valid rod licence, it is still possible to fish for coarse fish at many stillwaters and canals. Contact your local Environment Agency office for a list of stillwaters and canals within the specified Sites of Special Scientific Interest where the statutory close season still applies. Byelaws for your area can be found at: www.gov.uk/freshwater-rod-fishing-rules/overview
At £27 for coarse fishing and non-migratory trout, or £72 to also fish for salmon and sea trout, the annual licence is great value for money. There are flexible options to choose from too: a 1 or 8 day licence or the full season. There are also junior and concession options.
You can buy a rod licence online from the Post Office http://ow.ly/KiAn8, at your local Post Office branch or by phoning 0344 800 5386.

Last Day On The River Tomorrow

Well its that time of year we all dread, especially when the river is looking so good and catches have been good these last few weeks. However make the most of the last day on the river tomorrow until June 16th when we do it all again.

Don't forget your permit is still valid to fish Hinksey Lake and 6 miles of the Oxford Canal from Enslow Wharf to Heyford. 

Tight Lines for tomorrow and see you all again in June!
