Fishery report at 19th November 2020

10th November to 19th November. Again some good fishing for those who found the fish. 200 trout were taken for 111 visits with 162 fish being 2lb +. A final stocking of 360 fish went in on Tuesday making a total for the season of 6430 of which 3488 have been caught to date. Although some fish are still near the top on the whole they have tended to ‘have gone down a bit’ with intermediate and slow sink lines proving more productive especially if coupled with some small blobs or boobies,  cormorants, or montanas.   However floating lines with gold head patterns such as black and green; damsels; cats whisker and  small black patterns have proved effective especially on the calmer days when the fish tended to be nearer the surface.  The most productive areas, obviously subject to wind strength and direction,  would seem to be the north bank from Cromer Pier up to the north west corner; the middle of the west bank and the first six or seven swims up from the Club Pavilion on the south bank. As reported last time surprisingly enough the top bay and down by the outlet does not seem to be holding many fish yet but I am sure it will not be too long before these normally productive winter areas start to produce a few fish. I do hope so anyway as these are very pleasant areas to fish.

Anyway wishing you all the very best with your winter fishing.
