Thornton Weekly update week ending 13th October
The weather this past week was not ideal with strong winds and heavy rain at times.
Despite the rain our water clarity remains good
The weed beds along the Thornton arm, wood bank and down towards the lonesome pine are holding increasing numbers of trout as the trout start moving in on the fry.
Some anglers are still getting some sport to nymph & buzzers with Mark Hunt fishing in the worst of the weather on Saturday fishing a dry daddy to catch as did Dennis Barnes earlier in the week to take fish to 4lb4oz
Anglers using Minkies and fry patterns are finding that using the patterns on a floating line are producing best results
The best of the sport seems to be mid morning through to late afternoon.
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.
