Fisheries update 30th March 2020

Draycote, Eyebrook & Thornton Coronavirus Update 30th March 2020

It’s a week since the trout fisheries closed in line with the government directive, and I will be the first to admit it’s been a bit of a stressful time as we quickly had to prepare the fisheries for the closure.

Anglers were lucky that social media is flooded with fly tying, fishing video & blogs to help us while away the enforced home time.

We will be posting items on our website & social media, if you have any photos or video of your fishing trips to any of our fisheries, if you can share them it would be great, if you can forward them to shop@flyfishstore.co.uk we can add them to our library and post them during the next few weeks

Members, once I know the duration of the lockdown, I will be looking at some form of compensation for the period were closed.

Vouchers purchased will be valid to be used when we reopen later this year & will be valid to be used during 2021 for those who can’t use them this year

Tom Bird is currently preparing one of his excellent blogs with Martin Blakeston putting together a piece on the history of the Blackston buzzer

When up at the fisheries its noticeable that the buzzer hatches are improving with increasing numbers of martins travelling through each day. Spring is here

Thank you for your well wishes, everyone keep safe

Coronavirus, all of our fisheries remain open, with our staff following the advice from the authorities to regularly during the day clean the vulnerable areas, doors, counters, tills, credit card machines, phones etc

Fishery Report: Week Ending: 15th March

Monday to Thursday of this week followed the previous few weeks of low water clarity and few rods on the water.

Friday 13th with a good weather forecast and advise from the lodge that conditions had improved with clarity between 2ft & 3ft enough to warrant a visit the anglers were rewarded with a rod average 4.2

Richard Price caught 6 trout on a green booby while Howard Davies & Jan Webber shared a boat to catch 16 on cats whisker, Dave Slesser caught 7 for his visit while Clive Holt & Colin Chambers shared an afternoon boat to record 10 fish for their visit. The shallows opposite the lodge, wood & lonesome pine fished best.

Saturday & our sport continued to improve with the daily rod average 6.2 with the boats generally enjoying the best of the sport. Phill Mee found the fish up the Thornton arm catching 16 for his visit, Jan Webber returned for his second visit of the week catching 12 wit Mark Hunt fishing a DI3 with a cats whisker to boat his 14 trout. Our surface temperature has increased to 8c+ with anglers reporting increasing buzzer hatches.

Sunday & the poor weather returned, wet & windy with no boats out the few bank anglers who fished struggled with the windy conditions.

Clarity continues to improve and is currently close to 3ft

Good to see the sport picking up & its well worth a visit, contact the Thornton Lodge 01530230807

Fishery Report: Week Ending: 1st March 2020

Another week, another storm! It does look at long last that we may see an improvement in the weather.

A few rods did venture out during the week but conditions were against them

This morning our water level has receded since Thursday / Fridays rainfall with our clarity starting to improve, off the end of the pontoon this morning we have 13inch, I think we need 16inch+ ideal would be 18inch, we could be at that sort of clarity level by Wednesday, Thursday.

The clarity will be at its best from the bank outwards, I would expect the bank to start fishing better than the boats.

Thornton Fishery Update 23rd February

Posted by & filed under Reports.

Thornton 23rd February

Call 01530 230807

Very little to report as we advised anglers to stay away this week due to the high water level from the week before which coloured the water.

Water clarity is improving however we have to wait & see what impact the rain over the weekend has.

From our records you need to go back to 2002 or 2007 to find the last time we had the reservoir effected for so long by rainfall.

Had we not had the weekends rainfall we were looking at the clarity improving by Wednesday, following Sundays rainfall & depending on todays (Monday 24th) rainfall I will have a better idea tomorrow on when its likely to be worth fishing, ideally we need 14inch+ of clarity this morning at 10.00am we have 11 – 12inch of clarity.

My gut feeling looking at the various forecast and current localised rainfall  is that Thursday / Friday could be worth a visit

As always we recommend you call the lodge for latest updates 01530 230807

Fishery Report: Week Ending: 16th February 2020

Monday and its poor weather forecast, strong winds & sleet had us recommending anglers didn’t visit with everyone heeding our advice, Tuesday was the same with no rods out on the water.

Wednesday and conditions looked better with water clarity 12in+ however looks can be deceiving with the rods who fished in Wednesday returning a blank.

Thursday morning and following rain during the early hours the clarity was reduced further, a few members did venture out but with a small rise in the reservoir level which reduced the clarity further we took the decision to advise anglers not to fish on Friday and due to the storm Dennis forecast for Saturday we cancelled those boats also.

Sunday morning following heavy overnight rain from storm Dennis we arrived onsite to find the water level was as high as we have seen it for several years with the influx of water reducing the clarity. I doubt clarity will be good enough to fish much before this Thursday.

Poor week fishing effected by both major storms.

As always, we recommend you call the lodge before you travel for latest updates 01530 230807

Fishery Report: Week Ending: 9th February 2020

First full week of the season produced a weekly rod average of 4.8 with some individual days returning an average of 7+

When fishing catch and release please ensure you de barb the flies your using.

Monday boats again enjoyed the best of the sport using DI3 and DI7 sinking lines, the key to success was fishing sinking lines with orange lures, cats whisker, green pea, blobs and boobies. Lee Henfrey caught up the Thornton arm fishing 40yds off the bank. R Cotterill and S Wilson boated 18 fish for their visit.

Tuesday and better conditions saw an upturn in the sport with a rod average of 7+ with the fish been a bit more spread out along the Thornton arm, wood bank and into the Markfield arm. All Water member Ian Jobe bank fished off the corner of the wood with a floating line and weighted nymphs to catch his 9 trout. Steve Windram fished up the top of the Thornton arm with a DI3 and orange lures catching 22 trout. Rodger Dunster and Peter Wrigley boated 15 trout for their visit with Arthur Olding catching 10 fish for his visit

Wednesday the weather dropped a bit cooler with a ground frost greeting the anglers, again the DI3, DI7 lines produced best with the corner of the wood to the lonesome pine fishing well. Kevin Hart shared a boat Rodger Kerrison boating 19 between them. All Water member Clive Moore on his first visit to Thornton caught 17 trout with another All Water member Dave Slessor catching 10. Dave Leavesley banked fished catching 6 trout on a weighted black and green tadpole & appetizer.

Thursday a sharp ground frost greeted the anglers with the frost on the pontoon not clearing before 9am resulting in the boats not going out until the pontoon and boats were considered safe by the fishery staff. Not surprising the sinking lines caught best again with Bob Middleton catching 21 for his visit , All Water member Ed Douglas visited Thornton for the first time catching 14 trout with P Harding fishing a small white and green snake to catch his 14 trout using a DI3.

Friday and you could sense a change in the weather A Topping bank fished using a midge tip and hot head damsel to catch his 8 trout, R Middleton and D Lovegrove shared a boat catching 22 on yellow blob, orange and yellow humongous, black and gold humongous and coral booby. Saturday and the wind was starting to pick up Phil Mee caught 11, Lee Henfrey also caught 11 with Mark Hunt recording 16 with at least 3 overwintered fish. We have seen a few more overwintered fish caught this week with the majority in excellent condition and weighing 3lb+

Sunday due to the storm the fishery was closed, we seem to have missed the worst of the rain, the level is up a little with some colour running along the shallows, although no where near as bad as expected.

Fishery Report: Week Ending: 2nd February 2020

Windy conditions greeted the opening day anglers, with bank and boat anglers fishing the shelter they could find within the Thornton arm opposite the lodge. The second day of the season provided better conditions allowing anglers to fish the popular areas.

After 18 month of low water levels anglers were greeted with a full Thornton reservoir with the surface & it’s a sign of a mild winter with our water temperature at 7+degrees which is 2degrees higher than we would expect for the time of year. Water clarity is good

6.9 rod average for the opening two days with the Thornton arm down to the willows producing best from the boats although All Water member Neil Shilton caught 13 from his float tube (see photo on Facebook www.facebook.com/FlyFishStore ) With the mild conditions anglers caught fish throughout the day.

Sinking lines, in particular the DI3 type of sinking lines produced best with an array of lures working, from orange fritz gold heads, cats whisker, black and green tadpole, blob.

Boat bookings for Wednesday, Friday & Saturday have limited availability, to avoid disappointment we recommend you call the lodge and pre book your boats. If you’re coming to fish from the bank we recommend you bring waders

Over the weekend notable catches were recorded by Keith Cowen, Jan Webber, Chris Sayer, Tom Morris, L Serrano, Mark Hunt, Simon Zabrzenski, J Batts, Steve Lewandowski, M Draper & Rodger Kerrison.
