        I’m pleased to report that Elinor will remain open for both boat and bank fishing with the last day of the season being December 31st.
        Season ticket holders can bank fish during January.

        The 2021 season will start on Saturday February 6th.

        Fishing ticket gift vouchers make a perfect Christmas present.
        I can supply anything from a half day permit to a full season ticket. Please email me with your requirements [email protected]

        Very cold and not many anglers ventured out last week. Rain on Thursday and Friday has given the water a tinge of colour which seems to have helped catches, especially for bank anglers as the fish are less easily spooked.
        On Sunday Mike Edwards and Scott Bowman anchored off brookside bay and fished black and green lures to take 19 fish between them.
        Yesterday in freezing conditions only two bank anglers fished. Neil Groves caught 9 from the dam on a pink snake while Boris Rasic landed 16 from brookside with a black cruncher his top fly.

        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.
