Thornton Weekly update week ending 10th November
Thornton enters its last week of the season with our closing date falling on Sunday 17th November
This past week has been a mixed affair with the weather, strong winds at time & heavy rain not helping.
Despite the rain our water clarity remains good.
Fry patterns fished along the weed beds along the Thornton Arm, wood bank, lonesome pine & farm bank continues to be the best areas.
Quality of the trout taken during this time of year is excellent with 33 trout over 3lb recorded, Neil James caught 3 trout for his visit 5lb12oz, 5lb4oz & 5lb3oz, Mick Adkin caught rainbows of 5lb, 4lb8oz, 3lb8oz & 2lb8oz, K Russell caught a rainbow of 6lb as did Jack Hives.
