Thornton Weekly Report

Week ending 1st July

Tel 01530 230807

Difficult week at Thornton with our surface water temperature 20+ degrees all week.

Not surprising therefore that the morning session has fished best with anglers concentrating their efforts over the deeper water with boobies, blobs & snakes

Keith Cawley during his visit opted for a fast intermediate and various lure patterns to catch his 5 trout. Richard Dayman won the Thornton Fly Fishers boat competition with 4 trout with Martin Vernon second with 3 trout

Overall were experiencing the type of fishing conditions we would usually associate with mid July,

The water level is down around 5ft currently as STW have some work to do on the spillway, our water clarity has a slight algae bloom.

As always we recommend you contact the lodge for latest updates
