Weekly Report ending 12th October
77 rods recorded 75 trout for the week for a rod average 0.9
With no rain to speak of since July we were hoping for some substantial rainfall to introduce some fresh water into the reservoir & at long last that has occurred during the last couple of days.
Thornton Fly Fishers fished their single fly competition on Sunday with all participants using the same black booby pattern, fishing to a 4 fish limit Nigel Harvey won the match with the match averaging 2.6
With the wind & rain the fish have at long last started to move away from the deeper water areas into the arms with the mouth of the Markfield arm & weed beds opposite the Thornton lodge starting to produce.
Although some anglers are still taking some fish on dries & diawl bach there was an increasing number of trout caught this week on lures, booby & fry patterns.
