    March 21st – 27th

    119 anglers caught 377 fish of which 276 were returned.
    22 rainbows over 4lb
    9 browns over 3lb

    Best Fish
    12lb 14oz Paul Mortimer, Thrapston, black uv tadpole
    10lb 2oz Alan Rennocks, Kettering, black/red blob

    Best Areas
    Bank – all areas producing fish
    Boat – east arm, brookside bay, dam

    Best Patterns
    black/green lures, black cruncher, bloodworm, black buzzer

    A big improvement in the fishing with trout being caught from all areas of the lake. The water clarity is gradually improving and more fish are now being caught on smaller patterns.
    Bank fishing continues to be more productive than boat.
    A few fish are rising on calmer days but the majority of anglers are catching 3-5ft down.
    Spooned fish have been feeding heavily on black buzzers along with a few immature damsels.
