Thornton Weekly Report
Week ending 31st March 2019
Tel 01530 230807
A very mixed weeks fishing at Thornton with anglers reporting seen fish feeding on the improving buzzer hatches along the stones & in the evening from the corner of the wood.
Anglers found the fish they could see moving difficult to temp with some finding blobs & boobies easier to tempt fish, although the fish when spooned were full of buzzer
Areas that have produced are Stones, down past the lonesome pine & corner of the wood with the morning session fishing best.
As we move into April we normally expect to find increasing numbers of fish down the farm bank & with the increasing hatches of buzzer & the arrival of the sand martins it shouldn’t be too long before were out on the evening rise.
The next two stockings from the River Gwash are due Wednesday 3rd & Wednesday 10th
Reservoir is currently 3ft down if your coming to fish the bank wellingtons or waders are recommended.
