Thornton Weekly Report
Week ending 11th August 2019
Tel 01530 230807
Few anglers out this week as they took our advice due to water temperature, algae and stormy weather.
A few fish were taken and were pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of the trout caught with Mr Ashman taking a 4lb rainbow & Mrs Warren taking a 3lb+ rainbow both in excellent condition.
Surprisingly the larger trout were taken in the shallower water off the corner of the wood, with Mat Vickers picking his two fish up in front of the main car park over deeper water.
Snakes, booby and cars whisker were the patterns that caught the fish.
On Thursday we saw the first of the claret buzzer on the water, a buzzer we expect to see at Thornton during August.
Water temperature is starting to drop with it currently at 19c in the morning with the current forecast it will be somewhere between 18c & 19c by the middle of the week
As were hosting the John Horsey comp at Draycote this weekend 17th & 18th we have moved some boats as their required for the competition, this will temporarily reduce the Thornton boat availability, please call the Thornton lodge to book a boat before you travel.
