    The strong winds at the weekend kept rod numbers lower. However the wind and rain has helped to cool the water further. At midday today at 2 foot down the temperature is 18.9C. This is lower than usual for mid August and should see the fish switching back on much earlier this season rather than last year when things didn’t improve until late September.
    Damsels continue to hatch in good numbers. It’s also pleasing to see the return of some buzzer hatches especially during the evening.
    Elinor has continued to stock during the summer and has built up a good head of fish. For example, last week’s anglers took away only 29 fish and Thursday saw a stocking of 233 rainbows.

    Please take extra care when returning fish, especially during the summer. Leave the fish in the net while still in the water and remove the fly without touching or gripping the fish.
