Thornton Weekly update week ending 27th October
Despite the wind and rain our water clarity remains good.
The weed beds are the areas to concentrate on with the area in front of the wood currently producing best to floating lines and fry patterns although some anglers are catching on hare`s ear, diwal bach and cruncher.
Anglers fishing boobies deep are having success by concentrating their fishing along the old stream bed that runs up both the arms.
Thornton produced 46 trout over 4lb last week of which 11 weighed over 6lb with S Frakes recording a rainbow of 7lb, Mr Dunnett also caught a 7lb rainbow. Steve Warner on the float tube day caught fish of 5lb and 6lb
