Thornton Weekly Report
Week ending 21st July 2019
Tel 01530 230807
Thornton has suffered this week again as the warm muggy weather pushed the water temperature above 20c we also have an algae bloom
Not surprising morning session 8.00am – 3.00pm is currently fishing best.
Steve Brown fished Monday evening despite the warnings from the lodge that the fishing was going to be tough, not for Steve, small pink snake and 3 hours later 3 fish in the boat
Generally our advice of tough fishing has proved correct with the rod average at 0.6 for the week.
As usually the case a few people find a method that works and produces a few fish, Pete Hunt caught 4 for his mornings visit on buzzers, Andy Lilley caught 3 on Saturday morning again on buzzers with Mark Hunt fishing a team of buzzers off a midge tip to catch his fish.
The blessing for us is the shortening days, every week we will gain 15 minutes of extra darkness its during the cooler darker hours that the water will lose its temperature and get back towards a fish friendly 18c
