        Welcome to the Elinor Fishing Report

        June 24th – 30th

        151 anglers caught 586 fish of which 438 were returned.

        Best Fish
        12lb 2oz Dave Miles, Wellingborough, green diawl bach
        6lb 8oz Bob Senior, Stamford, boat
        5lb 11oz Matt Tuck, Yelling, green diawl bach, boat
        5lb 5oz Simon King, Finedon, red diawl bach, boat
        5lb 2oz Simon King, Finedon, red diawl bach, boat

        Best Areas
        Bank – coarse bank, east arm, boat bay, dam(in a north wind)
        Boat – down middle

        Best Patterns
        red or green diawl bach/cruncher, damsel nymph, dry damsel, black or olive hopper, white/green lure

        The high temperature on Saturday certainly slowed sport down over the weekend with less fish rising despite the large quantities of damsels hatching. Although the bank fishing has remained slow this week the boats were soon back on form early this week with Alan Rennocks catching 15 and Steve Loveridge 9 on Monday in single boats. Today, Tuesday, Derek Benamore and boat partner Graham Kempton shared 18 fish using a blue flash damsel with black buzzers on the dropper.
        The cooler temperatures this week should see more surface activity. During the morning the fish are concentrating on damsel nymphs but in the afternoon they switch to the adults and can be difficult to tempt. Anglers have had some success using a foam daddy or a dry blue damsel.
