Welcome to Elinor Trout Fishery ...
Elinor is Northamptonshire's premier medium-sized trout fishery. There are 50 acres of spring-fed, gin-clear limestone water. Because of the clear alkaline water, natural food is in abundance and our trout 'grow on' well becoming fat and healthy! There are superb fly hatches at Elinor which encourage many fish to surface feed. Depending on the time of year, buzzers, olives, sedges, damsels, daddies, corixa and daphnia all provide rich feeding for the Elinor trout.

Fly-fishing for Brown & Rainbow Trout, in idyllic surroundings. Our 2022 Season is from the 5th of March to the 31st of December, closing for a break in August, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Season permit holders may bank fish in January 2023.
We open daily at 7am, please call ahead or check the board for closing times as this will differ throughout the year.
At Elinor Trout Fishery there are 1.5 miles of superbly accessible bank fishing, which means there is plenty of space without Elinor being too large and daunting. We have a modern fleet of 15 modern boats, plus we have a Wheelyboat available with electric engine and battery provided. We stock weekly with top quality Rainbows and Browns.
