        May 29th – June 4th

        187 anglers caught 707 fish of which 531 were returned

        Best Fish
        8lb 1oz Matt Tuck, Yelling, black buzzer, boat
        7lb 10oz Steve Freeman, St Neots, fraser nymph
        6lb 2oz John Oram, Desborough, boat
        5lb 8oz Bob Pittman, Daventry, candy fab, boat
        5lb 6oz Steve Freeman, St Neots, fraser nymph

        Best Areas
        Bank – east arm, dam, gravel bar
        Boat – pylon point, east arm, down middle

        Best Patterns
        damsel, fraser nymph, red cruncher/diawl bach, olive cdc, black or brown hopper, tequila/candy fab

        Thurs, Frid, Sat were particularly difficult days with hot weather although the rest of the week produced good results for both bank and boat anglers.
        Plenty of fish taking damsels with an olive cdc working. Boat anglers fishing deeper down the middle have found fish easier to tempt than the surface feeders.
        If all else fails try pulling a tequila fab/booby or a snake across them!
        Prospects are better this week with cooler temperatures.
