Thornton Weekly Report
Week ending 10th February 2019
Tel 01530 230807
Thornton 2019 season opened on the 1st February. The opening 10 days has given us a variety of weather with ice, strong winds, rain and some mild weather, a proper mixed bag.
As we would expect the majority of the trout were caught opposite the lodge & down in front of the wood for the bank anglers with boats catching in front of the lodge down towards the lonesome pine.
Intermediate, mid-range & fast sinking fly lines with black and green lures, orange blob, boobies and damsel have caught with the warmest part of the day 10.30am to 3pm the most productive time to fish with anglers reporting a slow retrieve working best.
Reservoir is currently 3ft down if your coming to fish the bank wellingtons or waders are recommended.
Our rod average for the first 10 days of the season was 6.5
Following the rain on Sunday it has reduced the clarity as we always recommend you call the lodge for latest updates. 01530 23080
