    December 12th – 18th

    96 anglers caught 289 fish of which 221 were returned

    Best Fish
    5lb 2oz John Lashbrooke, Corby, appetiser
    5lb 1oz John Lashbrooke, Corby, yellow apps
    4lb 15oz Ray Ward, Olney, red apps, boat

    Best Areas
    Bank – Goodfellow bay, pensioners point, brookside, dam
    Boat – dam, Goodfellow bay

    Best Patterns
    Red apps, candy/tequila fab, green dial Bach, Montana, small damsel, white/green lures, black buzzer.

    Another decent week with a three fish average although many flat calm days made the fishing trickier combined with the extremely clear water.
    The mild weather has seen decent hatches of small black buzzers which have kept the fish near the surface.
    On days with a breeze the best method has been a floater or midgetip with a red apps or red head damsel on the point and diawl bach on the dropper.
    Most fishing is taking place on the bank although Ray Ward had a couple of boat trips last week. He had an uncharacteristic blank on Wednesday but got his own back in style on Friday catching 21! 19 on a red apps and 2 on a black cruncher.

    Last stocking of the year on December 22nd.

    Elinor is open for day ticket anglers until December 31st.
    Season permit holders may bank fish the whole of January.
    The 2017 season starts on Saturday February 11th.
