Description

The first part of the River Tone leased by the Club starts at Firepool Lock, this stretch is known as the Fast Stretch. This is a good stretch in the winter for chub, dace, roach, trout and the odd salmon and pike. Run by Taunton Angling Association.

Details

For the pike normal methods of spinning/lure fishing in the slacker water around the weirs can tempt them to bite. Pike prefer deep, calm, or slow-moving water where the weeds are fairly dense. They usually hide in these weeds, away from the main current.

With the coarse fish, using a stick float with maggots or bread is the best approach, try fishing above a weir trotting the float down the river and holding the float back 10 foot above the water.
