      its deep thats for sure, depends what section you on but if your down near the new bend they have been catching bream across into the old bit with the feeder, worm caster, maggot they'll eat it

              Hi jamie haent fished it this year so far but will probably have a few matches on there from oct onwards i would fishpole at about 11-13 mtrs few balls of groundbait and lightly loosfeed over the top pegs 45 -55 in the wider section very good on feeder with worm and caster lot of anglers using liquidized bread and if theres any fish about it seems to outfish groundbait its fairly deep so make rigs about 5-6 mtrs deep 1.5 -2 grams about right elastic because of depth and some big fish dont go to light use about 5-6 feed pole line and fish feeder to get some bait out after 45 mins try pole line see if anythings there then just alternate between the 2 if you are fishing early pegs roach may show again liquidized bread on feeder with a few pinkies good luck let us know how you get on.

                  i use sensas lake 50 -50 with brown crumb for the bream and liquidized bread if after roach some of the people i fish with use liquidised bread all the time and they have very good results still put a little worm and a few pinkies in each feeder full if using liquid bread chop and change hook baits i find pinkie on hook best bait there are some big bream in 45-55 but you can catch odd ones anywhere. Try and go down for a practice session.
