Not sure what method/baits to try out, swims to try, please advise.
on small rivers you wont beat chopped worm and maggot with half a lobworm on the hook tipped with a red maggot....unless you want to go the lure/deadbait/live bait route.

pole and bait dropper best method for hitting bites, then a buoyant float on rod and line then next if needs must a running bomb feeding with bait dropper and last resort chopped worm/maggot feeder

perch are similar to chub in liking structure and snags but don't like the flow as much. also as it gets colder deeper swims work best.

Derek
Get yourself down to Ufton. Far bank from Lock cut downwards.

Catch a few silvers. 3-4 ssg chubber size 6 hook.

Work your way down the many small slacks fishing right under the rod top holding back. Half a dozen maggots each minute upstream.
25mins per swim.

You"ll catch most days. There are some 4lbers.

Good Luck.

Default Ouse perch

Appreciate the tips chaps, had an afternoon on the Ouse and had a good session with fish up to a pound and half, lost a couple of larger, need to up the size of hook for the lob worms.
