    Welcome to the Elinor Fishing Report

    Water slowly clearing but fishing well in milder weather.

    April 2nd – 8th

    78 anglers caught 284 fish of which 207 were returned

    No monsters but 18 fish over 4lb

    Best Areas
    Bank – shallow bay, gravel bar, lagoon, east arm, dam
    Boat – east arm, coarse bank, gravel bar, dam

    Best Patterns
    black/green or white/green lures, black buzzer, black cruncher, green diawl bach, red apps

    Wet weather and flooding kept many anglers away. The water level is very high but clarity is improving daily.
    Only two boats have been out so far this week. On Monday, Richard Honey anchored off the pylon then the lagoon to take 14 fish on a floating line with a white lure. Meanwhile on the bank, Chris Selby also took 14 on a red apps while fishing shallow bay.
    Only bank anglers fished today, Tuesday. There was a huge buzzer hatch and fish were rising in the calm conditions although most fish were caught 1-3 foot down.
    Colin Ashpole had 11, mostly from the lagoon. Alan Rennocks managed 12 from brookside and Jim Nixon had a bonanza with 18 from shallow bay and Goodfellow bay, many of his fish coming to buzzers.
    Elinor is rammed full of fish as there’s been too much stocking and not enough anglers!
