Thornton Weekly update week ending 15th September
It has that autumn feel about it, cooler morning & evenings but great fishing weather with the majority of the trout caught this past week on floating lines with dries especially the daddy, suspender buzzer & muddlers with the fishery rod average 2.7
The orange buoy to the dam wall & across to the main car park produced best but get the wind in the south west blowing down the Markfield arm its certainly been worth a visit.
Mark Hunt fished the Markfield arm taking 9 trout to 4lb8oz on klinks & buzzer, Brian Sibley used a daddy to catch his 6 fish on Saturday morning while Mr Liggins & son fished the last four hour session using a daddy to boat 11 trout, Neil Bates fished an afternoon session catching his 6 fish limit. Andy Dermott fished hoppers & daddies to catch his 10 fish for his morning visit.
As is often the case as we enter the autumn we start catching trout which have been in the water for some time, D Timms 5lb rainbow, W Lewin 5lb4oz rainbow, A Dermott 5lb rainbow & Bob Memhams fished a daddy to catch 5lb8oz rainbow picture on our facebook page
Our last four hours fishing 1 fish kill + Catch & Release £10 and a rowing boat £4.00 offers great value.
