Thornton Weekly update week ending 6th October
This past week we held the Steve Parton Memorial match, 14 float tubers up against 14 boat anglers, the eventual winners is unimportant suffice to say the tubers trounced the boat angler, Jeanna Parton and family attended to hand out the winners trophy, this will become an annual event
Our fish are starting to move into the margins, the weed beds in front of the willows in particular are starting to hold good numbers, Cive Holt caught 6 from this area on Monday evening.
A few trout are still falling to the daddy but fry patterns are taking the majority of the trout with a floating fry, white muddler or minkie booby pulled through the surface getting lots of follows,
Andy Burton and Russ Martin both recorded trout weighing over 5lb this week with a number of anglers recording trout weighing 3lb or more
Best area green bay, wood bank and weed beds along the shallows.
The autumn great time to be out on the midland reservoirs
Our last four hours fishing 1 fish kill + Catch & Release £10 and a rowing boat £4.00 offers great value.
