        Welcome to the Elinor Fishing Report

        May 24th – 30th

        229 anglers caught 703 fish of which 454 were returned

        Best Fish
        7lb 6oz Pip Weatherington, boat (photo below)
        7lb 6oz Chris Holland, blue buzzer, boat
        7lb 3oz John Garwood, green squirmy, boat
        7lb 1oz Mr Weaver, damsel nymph, boat
        6lb 8oz Mark Britton, bank
        6lb 6oz Dan Sugars, red apps, bank
        6lb 0oz John Frain, boat

        Best areas
        Bank – dam, brookside, east arm, boat bay
        Boat – fish are well spread but easier to catch lodge end

        Best Patterns
        small damsel, olive cruncher, red diawl/cruncher, hares ear, black hopper, olive cdc, foam daddy, white/green lures.

        As expected the fishing was trickier in bright sun especially from the bank. Early and late in the day has been the best time although with a bit of cloud cover the fish are on top and in range of the bank. Water temperature is still ok at 18.2C 2 foot down today.
        Boat anglers have more options being able to search over the deeper water. If the rising fish are difficult it’s worth using an intermediate with lures 4–6 foot down. Otherwise a midge tip with fab and buzzers.
        The damsel hatch has started. A size 10 or 12 unweighted olive pattern will imitate the nymphs swimming towards the shore line to hatch. It’s later in the summer when the fish switch to the adult damsel.
        From around midday there is a good mayfly hatch along the brookside bank. A large hares ear or Fraser nymph is working.
        Excellent late evening rise sees fishing feeding on emerging buzzer, small sedge and caenis.
