    5lb 2oz Alan Rennocks, Kettering, candy booby

    Fishing was slightly slower last week but still a respectable 2.5 rod average. Bank and boat anglers doing equally well although bank anglers are catching most of their fish close to the surface whereas boat anglers are having success fishing deeper with weighted flies.
    On calmer days there are still plenty of fish rising taking small black buzzers.
    Stocking continues with Elinor open for boat and bank fishing until December 31st for day ticket anglers.
    Season permit holders only can bank fish in January.
