A lower rod average last week with four flat calm days making the fish more wary in the extremely clear water.
In cloudy conditions with a light breeze the catches are good. Today, Alan Rennocks and Roy Whitwell caught 15 and 12 fish from the brookside bank using apps or small damsels and a few other anglers managed 6. Yesterday in bright conditions bank anglers struggled with 5 fish by Derek Benamore top scorer.
Although the lodge end is still favourite there are fish as far up as brookside bay and on the lodge bank a few fish are now appearing on the gravel bar and in shallow bay.
Dries or floater and washing line continue to be the best methods.
Half day tickets are now available 7am until 2pm or midday until dark.
The new Mk11 Wheelyboat has arrived with help from a grant by East Northants Council.
Electric engine and batteries supplied.
Available to anglers who struggle fishing from our Coulam boats as well as wheelchair users.
