      On days with a light wind there are good numbers of fish rising with dries or floater/washing line the best methods.
      In a stronger breeze the fish have dropped down to 2-4ft with a small unweighted damsel or apps bloodworm on the point and small buzzers or diawl bachs on the dropper.
      At the lodge end of the lake the fish continue to be out of range of bank fisherman. Boats are using a team of buzzers or weighted damsels 8-12ft down to locate fish.
      The forecast milder weather over the Easter period should see larger buzzers hatching and even more surface activity.

      Best Patterns
      black or olive buzzer, small damsel, bloodworm, olive cruncher, red diawl bach, tequila blob, olive shipmans, olive cdc.

      The current April/May edition of Trout & Salmon includes a cracking article on spring fishing at Elinor.
