Trout can be seen rising and sipping at the buzzers in the surface film. A well placed cast will usually bring results

Rocklands mere: With crystal clear water stealth is the key here. The rise in temperatures last week with some overcast days with the occasional stiff breeze tested anglers. Small dries were the order of the day, fished on a long, well de-greased leader with precision. Andrew Wheating from Thetford took 11 fish including three brownies from the margins at the far end of the lake. Norwich rod Phil Ligood took four fish on his first visit, all caught from the west bank.

South Elmham trout fishery: Mr A Hallsworth took the honours with a cracking fish of over 7lb. There have been several brown trout caught, mostly in the 3-7lb region. Best flies have been buzzers, damsels, nymphs, dawl bachs and pheasant tails. One lake is crystal clear while the other has a very slight discolouration to it.

Larkwood trout fishery: The weather has had a tremendous effect on the fishing. The rod average is over five fish per angler. There have been no big fish but there have been plenty in the 3-6 lb bracket. As for flies just about anything will take fish but the most popular have been emergers, buzzers and nymphs.

Willow trout fishery: It has been a good week for Willow Lakes, with everyone taking there limit bags. There are some good rises of buzzers, especially early mornings and late evenings. Just about any fly will take fish but buzzers and hares ears have proved to be the most popular. The lakes are clear.

Narborough trout fishery: Most anglers are taking there limit bags. There are hatches occurring through out the day with the fish rising up to take them. The colder nights we are having are seeing the fish starting the day off deeper but working their way up in the water as the day warms up. Best flies have been gold headed flies such as nymphs, buzzers, pheasant tails and hares ears. Ian Bails took a superb over wintered fish last week.
