Eyebrook Trout Fishery season ticket holder Stuart Bilsdon of Uppingham has been catching plenty of hard fighting top quality rainbow trout on daddies. Gary Legge fished claret hoppers to good effect and caught ten rainbows while boat fishing recently. Ian Simmons and Neil Benjamin enjoyed their visit to Eyebrook from the north- east and caught on daddies and bibios. Season ticket holder Bill Whittle of Grantham was content with a brace of fish taken on a green and white tadpole and included a deep hooked brown trout that weighed 3lb 9oz, Bill also caught nine fish last week from the main basin on black buzzers. The eventual winning pair in ‘Bennetts Bash’ boat fishing competition organised by Mick Bennett were Tim Polito and Calum Naylor with eight fish for 14lb 13oz and in runners up position were Nodder Bennett and Adi Naylor with six fish that weighed 11lb 10oz.
After a pretty reasonable sort of summer it’s finally that time of the season with the water now cooling and the weed beds slowly but surely dying back, the resident trout are now being more frequently caught on daddies and floating fry patterns.

Jonathan and Rob Smith of Stamford both recently enjoyed their introduction to fly fishing under the guidance of Eyebrook’s Andy Miller. Following a quick brush up of the brothers casting technique it was out onto the near flat calm water with incidentally lots of fish showing on the surface. The pair certainly stood a good chance of catching while fishing static daddies on the surface. Rob managed to land a fish which he returned safely and Jonathan lost a couple, the brothers now can’t wait for their next fishing visit to Eyebrook.
Unfortunately, even a scheduled stocking of top quality rainbow and brown trout has done little to  improve the fishing at Eyebrook as persistent hot weather continues to effect fishing compounded further by thunderstorms and a deluge of rain.
 
With the recent hot weather conditions the fishing at Eyebrook has proved to be far from easy although a few anglers had tempted fish on deep fished buzzers from the cooler climes of the main basin there are now also a number of fish being taken on intermediate lines with nymph, buzzer and booby patterns from similar areas. On a number of occasions we have also experienced good evening rises to sedge, a boat evening session is therefore well worth a try while the weather is so hot during the daytime.
Other flies that have been taking fish recently at Eyebrook are bibios, snatchers, crunchers and dry fly patterns including bobs bits, small daddies and Cdc emergers.

Eyebrook Trout Fishery End of Season Report

Report w/e 29th November 2015
Trout Taken 11,624 Catch and Release10,601 Rod Returns 5,312 Fish per rod 4.18
Season’s totals

Restricted winter bank fishing commenced at the end of the boat fishing season and winter tickets were available until Sunday 29th November 2015 that sadly heralds the close of the 2015 Eyebrook fishing season.
 
During the last month of fishing at Eyebrook for 2015 we had noticed good numbers of trout venturing very close into the margins foraging for corixa, hoglouse and shrimp, and although the weather has remained mild but wet only a small number of trout anglers have ventured out.
Season ticket holder Bill Whittle of Grantham has on several occasions now bank fished from the three trees to pollards jump and has caught and released some very well conditioned rainbows on a floating line set up and prince nymph a fly also known as the ‘brown forked tail’ originated by Doug Prince of Monterey CA in 1941
Despite blustery wind conditions Bob Margery of Market Harborough fished the bank from the stones and caught several decent rainbows on a black cruncher and cats whisker. Wally Ogley of Yaxley continued to catch steadily on his faithful gold ribbed hares ear nymph from pollards and the bell.
Twelve hardy anglers turned out to fish the last day of the 2015 season and the last day of fishing was met with a pretty awful strong westerly wind ending with torrential downpours thrown in just for good measure. Pete Line of Ropsley took four decent rainbows from dogwood bay in double quick time Pete took his fish on a combination of black tadpole and orange hopper. Ian Reeves of Carlton Park caught and released four rainbows and Dave Etty of Kettering also took four rainbows on a combination of floating fry and hares ear nymph. Keith Johnson of Kettering caught and released what he considered to be his best looking rainbow of the season a beautiful grown on 3lb 8oz specimen. Many thanks to all those who braved the elements and supported the fishery on the last day of the season 2015…
 
The 2015 Eyebrook Pike Trials progressed nicely, the best pike taken during this years trials was caught by Northampton pike angler Andy Baldock who landed a fine 26lb 10oz fish on a jerk bait Andy’s boat partner Steve Dolphin got in on the action with a well conditioned 17lb pike. The latest of the bigger pike to be caught at Eyebrook fell to the rod of Corby pike fisherman Alan Shiveral who landed a superb 25lb specimen on a home made jerk bait, Chris James also landed a 26lb pike as well as an 18 pounder. Luke Kelbrick made a welcome return to the fishery and caught a 16lb 12oz pike, the greater majority of the pike caught during the 2015 Eyebrook trials have been taken on big (18cm) jerk bait lures. Brothers Matt and Phil Thomas fished dead baits for pike from the bank and caught a well -conditioned rainbow trout estimated to weigh between 7-8lbs from weedcutter bay.
