Thornton Weekly Report
Week ending 8th July
Tel 01530 230807
From our records you have to go back to 1995 to find similar conditions, with high daytime temperatures leading to high water temperatures. The only saviour has been a fresh breeze nearly every day, without that it could be a lot worse than it is.
Not surprising rod numbers fishing are low, only 20 rods fished last week, the majority followed our advice and fished the cooler morning session
Fast sinking lines RIO S7 or S8 or the Airflo DI8 or Booby Basher were the lines to put on with booby or blob on a short 6ft leader or the Snake patterns which have worked well across our waters this past week.
Unsurprisingly the deeper water in the main basin is the only area to concentrate your efforts
There are signs that the weather will start to change from the middle of next week, let’s hope so.
Severn Trent have some engineering work to carry out on the spillway, for this reason they are dropping the level of the reservoir by 6ft
We have some algae in the water, visibility is around 2ft
